It's an excuse to get creative. Thomas Poulin talks about one of his entries in the annual rapid races at Beaver Brae.
"It was just one of my favourites, because I just got to get my hands dirty with a bunch of clay and paint," he said. "I had a clay eel, clay fish, clay jellyfish."
Cubs, scouts, beavers and their parents fill the gym at the school every year.
"It's probably the racing," said Kaden Roulston, as he explained the attraction. "It's the rush of putting your car or truck on the track. It's really fun."
Everett Normand agreed.
"It's all about having fun and making the best car you can," he said, noting his favourite was a Lamborghini.
This will be next year's project. For this year, Normand entered a replica of a 1985 Mustang.
