Yes, they can! And we have an easy way to do that:
Dad and/or mom (or legal guardian) who join the New Berlin Soap Box Derby Commission and be a member "in good standing" (as determined by the Commission Chairman) by the June membership meeting will allow their child or dependent to be eligible to race or enter the queen contest in the same year.
For example, let's say you join the Commission at our June meeting. To achieve your "good standing," you would...
- attend as many monthly meetings as possible,
- help on race weekend,
- help at awards night,
- participate in other fund raising events or open houses through the year,
- join a sub-committee,
Commission meetings are held the 2nd Tuesday of each month (except December), 7:30 PM, at the New Berlin VFW Post #5716, 17980 W. Beloit Rd.
We look forward to meeting you and having you join the group. Your kids will thank you for it!
