The Muskegon Channel Presents -  B.Y.O.B. at Double JJ Resort
Feb 28-29th 2019

Remember the fun at the Double JJ when Build Your Own Bobsled Competition was THE party of the winter?  Well, it's back and we're making it a little bigger, a little better and putting a little purpose behind the whole thing too! 

Teams of up to 5 ( up to4 sledders - one pusher) people will race in bobsleds constructed only of cardboard and duct tape on Double JJ's tubing hill in two divisions, youths 12 & under and adults 13 years of age and older. 

Trophies will be given to the 1st 2nd and 3rd place winners in each division. 

The rules are simple.  Cardboard - duct tape and creativity!  You can design to impress, build for speed or both!  We have seen anything from flat pieces of cardboard with tape on them to giant pirate ships, Sherman Tanks and more!  Your imagination is key!!  Do you have a business to advertise?  Build a bobsled!  Are you part of a team or organization?  Build a bobsled!  Family, friends, a neighborhood project, you name it.  Come on up for a fun day on the hill and show off your mad skillz when it comes to designing something fun and functional!
