3rd Annual Trail Life USA Grand Prix

COVID-19 Update:

A Trailman Respects Authority…

Dear Friends – In order to support local policies around social distancing, we’ve decided to go ahead and cancel the upcoming Grand Prix build day (March 21st) and Grand Prix event race day (March 28th). We will reschedule the Grand Prix for a later time this year when appropriate. Those of you who pre-registered and paid online will be refunded.

For now, here’s a good article that may help give you and your families some good ideas for how to spend this unique time: https://blog.traillifeusa.com/letting-boys-be-boys-amid-coronavirus

Troop TX-0147 is hosting the 3rd Annual Trail Life USA Grand Prix for all Trail Life USA troops who wish to participate, boys and adults alike! While only Trailmen can compete in the speed and design competition, this event is open to all family members who would like to attend and cheer on their favorite trailman.

Trophies will be awarded in two areas: Speed and Design. The competition will be divided into four leagues:

  • Dragsters (Woodlands Trail)
  • Hot Rods (Navigators & Adventurers)
  • Concept Cars (3D printed WT/Nav/Adv)
  • Outlaws (Adults)

We are also offering a workshop build day on the Saturday before, March 21st, with power tools and adult-supervision for the belt-sander and band saw. We will also have a limited number of extra wood derby car kits that you may purchase if needed. (Note: Use BSA/Awana licensed kits -or- your own 3D printed model)
