Parents and scouts, the derby will soon be here! With Santa’s gift delivered by Cubmaster Bruce Steltzer or by purchasing a kit separately through the Scout Shop, work with your parents on getting your car ready to race! If you need ideas or would like to learn more about the history of the derby, you can head on over to http://www.pinewoodderby.org/ .
Here are the rules we will use for this year’s Pinewood Derby.
Pack 400 Pinewood Derby 2018 for Open Class (siblings, sponsors, parents, etc.)
Date Reminders: March 22, 2018 for Trials and Weigh-In with the derby itself on March 24, 2018.
TIME CHANGE! On the 24th, check-In will occur at 1:30pm, with the derby starting at 2:00pm.
And just a tongue-in-cheek reminder for us parents: Please take the opportunity to share in the experience, but make sure your scout makes and owns the decisions going into their car. The race will mean so much more if they feel that they had/have ownership in it. Your scout should be responsible for designing and building their car, with your help and supervision of-course.
