Feb 24th is Race Day!
Van Sciver School
8:30am Registration – 9:00am Racing Begins
Update: Snack/drink donations are needed for the Pack to sell at the Concession Stand. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can bring anything at 8:30am!
The pinewood derby is a racing event for Cub Scouts in the Boy Scouts of America. Cub Scouts, with the help of parents, build their own cars from wood, usually from kits containing a block of pine, plastic wheels, and metal axles.
Our Pack’s derby runs once a year, and is our #1 event! It is also our #1 fundraising event.
Every boy should arrive with the car built with the materials he received earlier in the year, his own “grand prix” car.
Help is encouraged, but everyone can tell when an adult builds a car compared to a 7-year-old’s work.
Come join the Pack for a morning of racing and fun!
