Despite the weather forecast for heavy snow tonight and tomorrow, we plan to proceed with the Pinewood Derby Finals as scheduled, Saturday, April 14, 2018. Because of the fewer number of racers participating this year and to try to get ahead of the weather, the start time for each race has been changed and is shown below. This is the same schedule that was emailed to the parents of the scout racers yesterday.
- Open Race – 9:20AM
- Lion – 9:50AM
- Arrow of Light – 10:20AM
- Webelos – 10:50AM
- Bear – 11:20AM
- Wolf – 11:50AM
- Tiger – 12:20PM
- Championship Race Immediately Follows the Tiger Race
CHECK-IN: YOUR CAR MUST BE INSPECTED AND TURNED IN AT LEAST 10 MINUTES PRIOR TO THE START OF YOUR RACE! NO EXCEPTIONS.
The date is set for the district’s 2018 pinewood derby finals! The Wayzata Community Church and Pack 283 from Wayzata will again play host to our derby on April 14, 2018.
This event is open to ALL CUB SCOUTS (Lion through Webelos). However, Packs are still encouraged to send the top three (3) finishers of each rank. We will not turn away any Scout that wants to put his car against the best competition from across the district. All participants will receive a specially-designed event patch.
The top three finishers in each race category will receive a trophy and they will participate in a final “race-off” at the completion of the preliminaries. In addition, the first race of the day will be the OPEN CLASS for anyone who would like to race, parents, Boy Scouts, grandparents, siblings (rules apply).
NEW this year! Girls will be able to race with the boys at each rank level. The Official Derby Rules, all the details, and registration are available using the link below.Pinewood Derby Resource Page and Registration Pinewood Derby Rules Informational Flyer (all the details)
