First Annual Paper Airplane Derby

Welcome to The Red Baron. We are pleased to announce that we will be participating in the Come Out and Play Festival on Sunday, June 6th with our game, "The Paper Airplane Derby".

What is a paper airplane derby?

The 2010 First Annual Paper Airplane Derby will draw from the pageantry of the Kentucky Derby with crazed announcers, wacky plane names and the frenzied desire to bring it all home with the winning paper airplane. The Derby is an all-encompassing game that brings together contestants of any size, age, gender or race to compete on a level playing field. Boys vs. girls, young vs. old, cats vs. dogs! Everyone has a chance to create the winning plane and bask in the glory of being the overall winner. If you are not in the mood to compete, cheer on your favorite paper airplane from the sidelines.

Planes will be evaluated for distance flown, innovative design, and pure spunkiness. Each competitor will be given thirty minutes to mingle and plot and another thirty minutes to build the paper airplane and test its flight. All planes will be engineered on premises with materials provided. Derby competitors will compete in heats until the field has been narrowed down to one triumphant winner.

Competition, glamour and fun are our goal. Staff photographers will take portraits and videographers will interview contestants to document the wonder that is The Paper Airplane Derby.

Think you've got what it takes to make a paper airplane to surpass all other airplanes? Have you always wanted to design an airplane so beautiful that it made someone faint? Do you secretly imagine yourself as a World War I flying ace ready for a dogfight? Then you’ve come to the right place.
