Farmers or local machinery sales companies might be willing to have their trailers used to haul the racers back up the hill after the race.
way adults in the community can become involved is by helping load racers
on to the trailer at the bottom of the hill.
Sponsors may be willing to contribute necessary components for the track.
A local trucking company provided the flat bed trailers
on which the ramps are fastened and moved them to the hill on race day.
Ramps as elaborate as the ones shown below should not be necessary, but
they allowed older kids to start at the top and younger kids a starting
point lower down to control speed.
Start and finish banners donated by sponsors benefit the organizers and racers. Everyone benefits because the organizers appreciate the banners and the sponsor appreciates the opportunity to let the community know it is a good corporate citizen.
Other sponsors can provide color, entertainment and refreshments
at the event.
Many large corporations appreciate the opportunity to be associated with community youth groups. Cooperative advertising can raise the positive profile of the organizer's event as well as the image of the sponsor.
Some organizers and/or participants have approached sponsors to purchase kits and entry fees on behalf of the participants. Service organizations can use the "entry fees" to support their favorite projects.
