SOAP's Cardboard Sled Competition

Who says sledding is only for children?  Certainly not the Superior Outdoor Adventure Program!  In fact, on Saturday March 5th, SOAP took a group of 8 students to the Ridgeview Golf Course for a full afternoon of downhill fun.  However, this was not your usual sledding adventure.   

The day began with a cardboard sled competition.  Participants were given two hours to create a masterpiece using a limited amount of cardboard and one roll of duct tape.  The finished products were quite brilliant. There was a toothbrush, a shoe, a coffin, a rocket, and more.  Once the creations were all decked out with bright accents, glitter pens and streamers, they were tested.  Each person got one run, and each sled was judged based on creativity, functionality, distance, speed and originality.  After a tough decision, a winner was announced.   

For most students it did not matter if they won or lost, they juts wanted to be outside, and what a perfect day it was!  So before the group could return to campus, a super sled had to be made out of all the tubes and left over cardboard.  Then, all the students and trip leaders piled on for one heck of a ride. 

This trip certainly brought out the creative side of everyone as well as the inner kid!

Through our programs and facilities, Campus Recreation provides an array of recreation and wellness opportunities that foster active and healthy lifestyles.
