NTPRD Chiller Registration Fee: $5 / Sled


Bring your pre-constructed bobsled with you and register at the door. The only materials permitted are cardboard, tape, glue, wax, lacquer, and paint. All materials must be dry at registration. No wood, plastic, or metal is permitted (including staples). All sleds must have hockey tape or packing tape lining the bottom to prevent damaging the ice. Once registered, you will race your bobsled on the ice. Have your friends or family push you in the sled, or brave piloting your sled alone by running and jumping into it. Participants should wear athletic shoes and are permitted to wear helmets. Prizes will be awarded for race winners, best design, and most creative.
