Pinewood Derby - 28 Jan 2012

posted Dec 27, 2011, 5:33 PM by Tim Rapp
Please provide your Scout's car name - plus any sibling/parent car names - to your den leader by Friday, January 13th. Den leaders, pass the names to me once you have all the names in your den.

The derby will be held at Grace Community Church at 5102 Old National Pike in Frederick. This is the church just up the hill from the I-70 East interchange on Alt 40. It's the same turn as for Ft. Knox Self-Storage.

Registration opens at 7 pm on Friday, January 27th and goes until 9 pm. Once a car passes inspection and is registered, it is left at the registration table.

We will also be setting up the track that evening. Help is appreciated.

Registration re-opens at 8 am on Saturday, January 28th. Races begin at 9 am.

Refreshments will be available for sale.

Please impress upon your Scouts the need to respect Grace Community Church's environment, as well as other Scouts when their cars are not racing. We have 35-40 races to run, and each race only involves 4 cars. Scouts will therefore spend about 90% of their time as spectators.

Any questions on car construction, please do not hesitate to ask your den leader or myself.

Have fun and good luck!
