Build your vessel before derby day. Take as much time as you want to plan, design, and build.
Your derby vessel must consist of the following materials only: cardboard, duct tape, string, twine, paint. Each vessel will be inspected by our judges at check-in to ensure that it complies with the rules.
Vessels will navigate the course one at a time. This is a derby, not a race.
Your objective is to successfully pilot your vessel down the course towards the scoring zone at the bottom. Your vessel must come to a stop on its own. You cannot use your arms or legs as brakes.
All participants must wear helmets.
Children under 6 must co-pilot with an adult. Sorry, children under 3 may not participate.
Each vessel may only be used by one participant or team.
Each vessel will be judged based on the following criteria:
Proximity to the scoring zone
Creativity of concept and design
Prizes may also be awarded for any or all of the following:
Best derby vessel name
Largest derby vessel
Most colorful derby vessel
