Description

Attention All Racers,
 
This year's PEI Area Provincial Kub Kar Rally is to be held in Charlottetown on Saturday, April 13, 2019.
 
Kids from across PEI have been working for weeks or even months to get their cars ready for this year's big race. Come out to see the action as the young racers with their handmade wooden cars compete with each other for the fastest on the Island. 
 
Beaver scouts, ages 5-7, are our youngest racers and they create fun little "Beaver Buggies". Cub Scouts, ages 8-10, spent weeks sanding down blocks of wood to make the perfect aerodynamic hot wheel car called Kub Kar. Lastly, our Scouts, ages 11-14, take on the most challenging wooden racing vehicle - the 18 wheeler Scout Truck. These projects introduce youth to various levels of woodworking and carpentry skills and almost by accident instill a level of pride of their creations. 
 
Ten year old Sarah, 1st St Michael’s Cub Pack,  says the cars start out as a block of wood, “You can do whatever you want with it,  but it has to be a certain weight and size to make it.  It takes a lot of time to sand, and then you can prime it to make it look better.  Then you can paint it or Sharpie it, or whatever you want.”
