Get Ready Pinewood Racers!

by on December 1, 2012

Greetings Pack 811 Racers!
Our annual pinewood derby will be held on Sunday, January 27th. Click on the image on the right for the details and official rules. Note that all cars must be turned in on Saturday, January 26th.

Since we now have a new track with a lower overall rail height, the minimum clearance under the car has been reduced. This should allow for the standard triangular BSA Derby Flat weights to be installed under the car.  See the Derby rules for the allowable clearance.  We also added several new design categories for our creative scouts to compete in.  Please be sure to read all the rules for a few other additions for this year.

We are once again including both siblings and parents in this year’s event. You can contact Paul Hinz if you need extra car kits or stop by the local Scout Shop in Anaheim. Scout entries should include their own “BEST” contribution.

A workshop will be held on December 14th prior to movie night for those that need a little help getting started. Check the Pack Calendar for any updates.  Some useful hints can also be found on line. Check out the Resource Library for some links. We are looking forward to another great event!
