Pinewood Derby 2019/2020!

The Pinewood derby is right around the corner!! We wanted to share key details about dates, rules and volunteering

Dates and Rules

  • Weigh-ins Dates / Times: TBD
  • Race Day: Sunday, Jan. 12, 2020 from 1:00pm-3:00pm at Harper Gym (located at the other end of the school)

Once the weigh-in dates are announced, we highly recommend you try to get to the first weigh-in if possible in case your car requires modifications to meet the rules. However you do not need to attend both. Once your Scout’s car has been cleared, we will impound it for the race.

  • There are lots of opportunities the Scouts can aim for: fastest; best colors; most unique; best design; funniest.
  • Remember that while this is a fun activity to do together, it’s important that the Scouts do the work — not the parents.

Sibling race

This year there will be a chance for siblings to race cars. Additional kits for this can be purchased at John Millen Hardware.

Volunteering

This is an easy and fun volunteering event. After all, you are already at the race! We need help with setup/cleanup, trackside help, and award voting — none of which take much time and are a lot of fun. Volunteer Signup will be posted shortly!

Cars

If you did not yet get a Pinewood Derby car, you can contact your Den leader or our Cubmaster.
