Oh, yes, it’s that time of year again! This year’s Pack 196 Pinewood Derby will be held on Saturday, February 24 beginning with a 9 a.m. check-in and a 9:30 a.m. flag ceremony. Optionally, you can check in your vehicle on Friday night at 6 p.m. — everything will be taking place at Cross Tracks Church.
This year we’re again holding a “tech” session on Saturday, Feb 10th, where you can design, develop and build your Pinewood Derby cars. We have all of the tools and safety tips you will need. Lunch will be provided, so please join your fellow Scouts and families for this fun and educational opportunity. (More details on the TroopTrack site.)
Cubs should have received info about the rules and guidelines with their car kits, but here’s an electronic copy (PDF download) in case you misplaced it or want to refer to it on your phone or at work or whatever.
Here are some links to our previous years’ posts about the Pinewood Derby, which include some tips and tricks:
