DETAILS: Pinewood Derby is geared for the WHOLE Family! We have a group for siblings and Adults! Build your car at one of our workshops or on your own. Remember to give your car a really cool name! Science has proven that makes it goes faster. Scouts race you cars down an aluminium track with real electronic timing gates! Race against others in your rank. If you place in the Top 3 for your rank, you head to the District Pinewood Derby. 

All Scouts will receive a participation ribbon and scouts that place in the top three for their rank will receive a trophy. The top three of each rank will race for over all top three of the Pack! Parents bring your cameras! There is tons of fun to be had with great sportsman competition. Please visit our website for rules. 

There are 3 different Groups:
1) Cub Scouts - Every rank races in their own division (Tigers, Wolfs, Bears & Webelos)
2) 
Alumni & Adults (AoL will race as Alumni)
3) Siblings
