ROTHBURY, MI –January 7, 2010 Looking for something to do with all of those boxes left over from the holidays? Why not add a roll of duct tape and some creativity and turn them into a bobsled! Double JJ Resort is proud to announce the return of Total Rock 101.7’s Build Your Own Bobsled event on Saturday, January 16. This event invites participants to craft their own bobsled using nothing more than cardboard and duct tape. The teams of two to five people race their creations down the tubing hill, competing to see whose bobsled will make it to the bottom fastest. There are prizes awarded both for fastest time and for best decorated bobsled. Teams may be composed of family members, scout troops, companies, or anyone who’s up for the challenge!

Registration begins at 3:00pm on the day of the event, and each participant is asked to bring a canned good as their registration fee. The Double JJ Resort will be donating all of the proceeds from this event to an area food pantry. The youth division race begins at 5:00pm for everyone ages 17 and under. This will be followed by the adult division for those 18 and older at 7:00pm. Entry forms & waivers may be downloaded from WMRR’s website ( and brought to the Double JJ on the day of the event. The Warming Hut adjacent to the Tubing Hill will be open during the event for those seeking refreshment, along with a beer garden open to those 21 and up.

The Double JJ Resort re-opened in July of 2009 under the management of Progressive Resorts, LLC. The Thoroughbred Golf Course, Gold Rush Waterpark, Back Forty Ranch, and Sundance Steakhouse are all open for business, with plans for the original Ranch location to re-open in 2010.
