Our friends over at AIGA Detroit are hosting a pinewood derby. We are helping out by giving participants a space with tools to plan and build their derby cars. The actual race day will occur sometime in January, but there will be a series of workshops leading up to the event. Here is a little blurb from their website on the next workshop day:
Monday, October 24, 2011October 24, 20118:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Join us for our second workshop designed to help participants prepare their cars for AIGA Detroit’s Greased Up Pinewood Derby to be held this January. This workshop will focus on continued tips and how-tos so you can transform your block of wood into a speed racer or a magnificent show car. Experts will be on hand to lend advice or bounce ideas off of. Come meet fellow racers and start working on your wheels at I3 Detroit. Hand tools and supplies will be available (pens,pencils, draft paper, sand paper) but feel free to bring anything else you might need to help in the drafting of your vehicle.
I3 Detroit 1481 Wordsworth Ferndale, MI 48220
$15 for Non-AIGA member $10 for AIGA members
Please RSVP here if you plan to attend the workshop to ensure we have enough kits available.
*the workshop price includes a full Derby kit which contains a block of wood, axels and wheels and use of the I3 space and tools!
