Rapid Rally Racers


 


Thunder Bay’s annual Rapid Racer Rally comes to Victoriaville on Saturday, February 25. Beaver Scouts, aged 5 to 7, will be racing hand decorated Beaver Buggies; in the 8 to 10 year old section, Cub Scouts carve wooden cars and paint their own designs; Older youth, in the Scout and Venturer sections race model18 Wheelers.  Of course, the leaders of each section also race their own designs.  The Rally will commence at 11 o’clock.

KubKar racing is an international event, started in 1953 in California, and rapidly spread across the continent.  Cub Scouts, with the help of parents, build their own cars from wood, usually from kits containing a block of pine, plastic wheels, and metal axles. 18 Wheelers were first introduced in Thunder Bay in 1991, and the first regional truck rally was held during a Camporee in Quetico Park in 1992. The event gained Scout Canada National’s attention, and was quickly spread across Canada.  There are few rules, allowing the youth’s imagination free reign in design and paint schemes.

The annual Rally is held in conjunction with Scout-Guide week, when the movement celebrates the joint birthdays of Lord and Lady Baden-Powel on February 22nd, the founders of Scouts and Girl Guides. The Thunder Bay Area Scouts invite everyone to come and watch the Rapid Racer Rally, and enjoy a piece of Birthday Cake.
