3. Brush Clean Up
Every year we do an invasive brush clean up a week or two before the derby. Date and time will be upon coordinating with the Bureau of Environmental Services and will be announced to all teams. This is essential to spectator viewing and safety. Not to mention it helps Mt. Tabor Park. We love our mountain and our extra work helps us lock in a race the following year. Anyone willing to help is welcome.
(B) Pre-Registration Deadline is Saturday, April 14th, 2018 at midnight
1. Teams with completed pre-registration will be invited to the "first come first serve" racer registration on Saturday, April 21st @ 7am. Location will be determined and emailed to all qualifying Race Teams. You will draw a number from a hat, which will be your “Race Team Number” for 2018. After all available positions/race teams are filled we will form a waiting list of alternate teams. Don’t worry, several teams from the alternate list are called to race each year.
