It’s the Pinewood Derby Post!

The pinnacle event of the year is almost upon us. With the Pinewood Derby a few weeks away, here’s everything you need to know to get rolling (pun intended).

Step 1: Get your stuff
If you don’t already have your Pinewood Derby kit, connect with your den leader.

Step 2: Get crackin’ on March 1
This Sat., March 1, scouts are able to get help cutting their car at the Stephenson house (2049 N 53rd St.) from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The rules have been revised this year. Make sure you peruse the updated 2014 rules.

If you’d like to take your car for a test drive, attend the District Pinewood Derby on Sat., March 8 in church hall from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Step 3: Get weighed in on March 15
The weigh-in for the Pinewood Derby is March 15 from 12:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. at Saint Sebastian. Any scout participating in the Pinewood Derby must register his car during this time. There will be some tools on hand to make some minor adjustments. Just as Rome wasn’t built in a day, neither should you shoehorn your car’s construction into this single day. After weigh in, the cars will be stored onsite until the race the next day. Cars will not be allowed to be entered on March 16.

Volunteers needed on Saturday:

  • 3-4 people to help get the track down from 11:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
  • 6+ to help with weigh-in by volunteering for a shift during the 11:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. timeframe

Step 4: Off to the races on March 16
Our Pinewood Derby is scheduled for March 16 at 12:00 p.m.. Concessions will be available during the race. Come hungry, come happy. It’s gonna be a good time!

Volunteers needed on Sunday:

  • 3-4 Boy Scouts to help with the race
  • Pit manager
  • Computer operator

If you are willing to help out the pack and volunteer for one of the needs listed above, please contact Dave Blanchard or Ed Heidenreich.
