Signup Underway for YMCA 2012 Soap Box Derby

Ladies and gentlemen, start your... well, there are no engines, but the soap box derby will be rolling full speed ahead in no time.

The fourth annual event is set for September, but now is the time to contemplate coasting down the 9th Street hill in Downtown Wichita Falls and crossing that finish line.

It's no longer a competition for kids only.

This year, coordinators are upping the age limit and allowing adults to join in on all the fun.

"During the race, most of the adults down there were really curious on when it was gonna be their turn and they were real excited about. So, we thought what a better time than now to really bring in that portion of the race.... adult, build your own," says Brandon Brown, executive director of the YMCA in Wichita Falls.

The YMCA 2012 Soap Box Derby is September 22nd, but now is the time for kids and adult to sign up.

The cost is $100 for kids ages 7 to 12 and $150 for the adults category, which includes those ages 16 and older.

For more information, call the Downtown YMCA branch at (940) 322- 7816.
