Pinewood Derby

The 2022 Pinewood Derby will be on January 21st, 2022 so it’s time start planning those cars.  Pinewood Derby Kits will be distributed to all scouts at the December Pack meeting.

Here are a few tips & reminders:

Please review the official rules as this will make the check-in which starts at 6:00 and closes at 6:45 go much smoother – Pinewood-Derby-Rules. Scout cars must be made with the materials contained in the Pinewood Derby kits and weigh no more than 5oz. fully constructed.

In addition to awards for the fastest cars, awards will be given for the following other categories:

Cubs Choice, Judges Choice, Most Original, Best Cub-Scout Theme, Most Aerodynamic, Most Patriotic

Siblings and adults are welcomed and encouraged to build their own Pinewood Derby Cars for a special Open Races. Adult and sibling cars must fit the track dimensions as stated in the rules, but may exceed the weight limit up to 10oz. The car must be made from the official pinewood derby kit block and have 3/8″ clearance so that it will run down the track, almost anything else goes.

More information can be found on the PWD-flyer and if you are looking for inspiration, check out Boy’s Life’s Amazing Pinewood Derby Car Designs of 2019.

Hungry? We will have pretzels and water for sale (please try to bring small bills if possible).
