Our Grand Rapids Movers help host a Crazy Cardboard Sled competition

All bundled up, this racer is ready to go sledding down the hill at Richmond Park.Our yearlong 85th anniversary celebration continued in February, as our Grand Rapids movers slid into Grand Rapids WinterWest celebrations.  WinterWest is a two week event put on by the Friends of the Grand Rapids Parks.  During the celebration, a temporary ice rink was assembled, a 3 v 3 hockey tournament hosted, a fat tire bike race was held, and a warming hut set up to keep everyone toasty.

With all that fun going on, our Grand Rapids team knew they had to get in on the action.  We teamed up with Friends of the Grand Rapids Parks to help host a Crazy Cardboard Sledding Competition!  In this fun event, teams go sledding down a snow-covered hill in a variety of homemade, all-cardboard sleds.  Awards were given out in two categories:  furthest distance, and People’s Choice (Most creative).

Participants utilizing Corrigan moving boxes to build their sleds for the race.Before the event, our Grand Rapids movers and office staff hosted a sled building station.  We supplied the cardboard, the tape, and some creative ideas to help get teams ready for the big race.  And as always, our 1929 Ford Model AA truck and the Chief had to come along to celebrate as well.  A lot of fun and laughs were had while these creative sleds were being built!

The race itself was great fun as well, and there were some truly creative sleds out on the hill.  We saw fire trucks, airplanes, trains, tanks, and even a car filled with characters from the Muppets.  In total, there were about 50 different sleds in the event. It was a great event to be able to participate in, and it was nice to get out and enjoy the winter’s snow for a change.
