The Pinewood Derby is one of the biggest events of the year. Be sure to mark your calendars for Saturday, January 28, 2012.
There is NO cost to enter the Derby, and all scouts that participate will be given an awesome patch. There will be four design award categories (more information soon) and awards for fastest car by den. We will also have a championship round for the sixteen fastest cars.
Pinewood Cars were distributed at our Pack Meeting on Tuesday, December 13. If you weren’t at the meeting, pick up your scout’s pinewood kit from your den leader. Make a note of the number on the box, since this will be your son’s identification number for the race.
The rules for our 2012 Derby can be found here (Derby Rules 2012). These spell out the dimensions for the cars, the weight (no more than five ounces), and other important considerations.
More information will be posted as we get closer to the race. An especially big thank you to all volunteers that signed up at the last Pack Meeting, we will post a full list of volunteers by time slot & job in January.
