Pinewood Derby 2018

The 2018 Pinewood Derby will be back at St Pius X Catholic Church in the auxiliary gym on Saturday, March 3rd starting at 11:00AM.

Doors open at 11:00AM for racers to sign in, make last minute adjustments, and weigh in. Opening ceremonies will be at 11:30AM, with racing to begin shortly afterward.  Each den will race against each other (Lions, Tigers, Wolves, Bears, then Webelos).  Awards will be given for den and pack winners, and also for cars with the best designs.   Siblings are invited to build their own cars and race in the final heat.  Hot dogs, chips, and drinks will be available for sale throughout the races.  Closing ceremonies and awards about 2:30.

This year, we will have a new aluminum track with four lanes and an electronic timing system!  We hope this will allow each scout to have more races with less setup time.

We ask one parent from every family to help out with the derby in some way.   No special training is required, and each group will be led by a parent who has done it before.  Please sign up to help out here:
