It is back!  Time to start constructing your cardboard sleds to compete for cash money.  We had a blast last year on the hills at Mt. Holly and this year will be no different!

Time for a little fun on the slopes.  Join us on Saturday, February 22nd for the second annual “Tim Horton's Cardboard Classic Sled Race” with Banana 101.5  Grab a friend and start constructing your very own cardboard sled to tear up the hillside.  There will be cash prizes, trophies, and bragging rights for the top sleds.

We will be joined once again by our friends at Black Tie Productions to keep the music going while we tumble down the hill.

The “Cardboard Classic” is definitely going to be an event you are not going to want to miss.  We’ve taken over one of the slopes at Mt. Holly and are looking for teams of two to fight for the title of “Kings of the Mountain.”  Check out all the details below.
