Are you the fastest of the fast? The quickest of the quick? Then mark your calendars for the Lake Minnetonka Pinewood Derby District Finals on Saturday, March 16th. We want the best racers, who have a need for speed, to race to be the fastest in Lake Minnetonka District. Every Pack should send their top three (3) racers from each rank, Lion Scout – Arrow of Light, to find the best – free to those racers. That is eighteen (18) racers per Pack! (If a top racer can’t make the derby, then the pack should send a replacement.) We’ll compete to find the best pinewood derby cars for each rank, as well as the overall winners for the district.
Your best racers will compete at RIDGEDALE CENTER – where everyone can join and be a part of the fun! What better place to showcase your racer!Pinewood Derby Finals
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
There will be “Scout-O-Rama” like events and activities for the whole family!! Check out the Climbing Wall, Archery Booth, STEM activities, creative kid activities, adventure booths, and cool giveaways! A great way to spend some time between races, or just come out to enjoy the fun activities. Bring the whole den out for a great den activity. And make sure to Bring A Friend to see what Scouting is all about – what an awesome way for friends and family to experience just some of the fun that Scouting offers. Non-Scouts who stop by the membership booth can pick a car and race after the Championship race.
The event is hosted with Mustang District, however, we’ll have separate winners for each district. There will also have two open classes at a cost of $5.00 each – (1) Lake Minnetonka or Mustang District Cub Scouts (outside of the top 3 from each rank), Scouts BSA, the siblings of Scout Racers, and parents, and (2) Scouts outside of our districts.
