Our first ever mini olympics right here in Saint Louis!
We are partnering with Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis to bring an amazing event to the St. Louis area. General Finishes and Ryobi are amazing sponsors allowing us to put on this event! We want to encourage people to DIY and learn the basics when it comes to power tools and doing things on their own.
We have created a tournament with prizes that you can participate in for a good cause!
Competition is April 14th and will begin at 8:30 am. You will be given a start time 1 week ahead of time.
Requirements are general comfortability with power tools and ability to follow instructions throughout the competition. You do not have to be an expert to compete! This will be an all day event that we plan to complete around 6pm. There will be breaks throughout the day!
Proceeds will be donated to Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis.
An auction will be held April 27. More info to follow.
Here is what is happening! We are limiting this event to 36 teams of 2. Registration is PER PERSON so please put the name of the person you would like to be partnered with if you are only paying for one spot.
Registration is $99 per person which includes:
1) An event tshirt (please select size at check out)
3) All required supplies and safety equipment
4) Items built during event or prizes depending on how far you get!
Proceeds generated will be donated to Habitat for Humanity!
Here is how the big day will work!
Each team will be given a start time between 8:30 and 10am. Each team will build a blanket ladder with plans provided and finish it using General Finishes products!
Out of the 36 competing teams, 6 teams will be selected to move to Round 2. The winning 6 teams will have their ladders featured in an Auction for Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis and the remaining teams will get to keep their ladder. So all our Round 1 peeps will get to keep their ladder, enjoy breakfast, each get a tshirt, and it all is happening for a good cause!
The remaining 6 teams will be provided lunch! Each team will be building a side table. Some (not all) of the necessary components will be pre-cut. And the teams will complete the tables and finish them using General Finishes products. All side tables will be featured in an Auction for Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis!
