Pinewood Derby details

Posted on Feb 5 2023 - 2:05pm

Tomorrow, Monday Feb 6th is Weigh-In Day

Please bring your scout in uniform to the weigh-in, as we will be taking pictures of each scout and their car for printed materials.
Cars numbers should be affixed to the car using the included stickers, or integrated into the paint scheme.  The car number needs to be visible from the top.
The white sticker label on the front of each derby car box includes the scout's name, car number, and den.
After your scout's car has passed inspection and weigh-in, the derby committee will hold onto the cars in a secure location until Race Day.


Location:
    Buena Vista Elementary
    Multi-Use Room
    Monday February 6th
    6:00pm-8:00pm


More weight, more speed!
Please remember that cars can be up to 5oz in weight.
The more a car weighs, the more potential energy it has stored at the starting gate, and the faster it will be across the finish line!
Weights can consist of any material such as coins, washers, fishing weights, etc.
The scout store and online stores have a variety of pinewood-derby weights for sale as well.

(NOTE: Kitchen scales can vary considerably in accuracy.  To account for this we will allow up to 5.05oz)


Best of Show Category
As in previous years, we will have the audience vote for their favorite designs.
Fast and precise counts, but style and character count too!
