MERCERSBURG, Pa. -- There's no time to be graceful when you're sliding down a hill on cardboard and duct tape in less than 15 seconds.
Most of the contraptions debuted Sunday demonstrated how the Cedar Ridge Wild & Wacky Cardboard Sled Derby got its name. The homemade sleds often spun their riders in circles or wedged themselves on snowy berms.
Fifty-eight entrants submitted sleds big and small for the event hosted on the snowtubing hill at Whitetail Resort. The annual event serves as a fundraiser for Williamsport's Cedar Ridge Ministries and its ropes course.
"This is starting to build, and we hope to keep building as the years go by," said Beth Schroyer, an executive assistant at Cedar Ridge.
