Simsboro on a roll with race
In the case of Simsboro’s Soapbox Derby, spinning your wheels is a good thing. Simsboro Habitants Restoring, Uniting and Beautifying Simsboro will host the second annual Soapbox Derby from 10 a.m. to noon on Nov. 13 on Rose Street. The quarter mile, two-lane downhill course is located on the west side of Reagan Madden Park.
Thelma Williams, SHRUBS chair, said children ages 5-18 can compete. A completed and parent signed entry form should be turned in to Town Hall by Nov. 4.
On race day, drivers will speed down a course lined with hay, Williams said. Safety regulations require drivers to wear a helmet, she said.
