2015 Dine & Derby | February 22 | 6:00p | Multipurpose Hall

It’s almost time for our annual evening of all-you-can-eat delicious food, competitive derby car racing, and a whole lot of fun engaging with our church family and friends. We want you there! The night promises excellent all-you-can-eat sirloin steak and sides prepared by the Royal Rangers and the best pinewood racing around.

All-you-can-eat steak—then it’s all downhill from there!

Young, old, or anywhere in between—you have a place on the track. Personally handcraft your car for pure speed or purchase a pre-made kit and race for fun. You have three options:

  • $5 buy a kit and build a car from scratch
  • $8 buy a pre-cut, weighed, and painted car—ready to decorate
  • $10 rent a ready-to-race car

Visit the Royal Ranger table in the foyer to get your kit, official rules, tip sheets, and more information. It’s also the place to purchase tickets. Tickets are $5 in advance or $7 at the door (supply limited).

This event is a great opportunity to introduce your friend or neighbor to the Central Assembly family! We gather together, study together, worship together, pray together, serve together, and yes, have fun together. We are better together.
