We are very excited to announce our Pinewood Derby 2020! We wish we could all be together for this fun event, but have found a way to still have a great race, while social distancing. This will be a virtual event and happen over a few days.
FIRST - Work on your cars! The Pack 48 rules are available on our site from the above link.
SECOND – get your finished car to your den leader no later than Noon on Friday, November 6.
Den leaders will turn all the cars into Race Officials for the Virtual Pinewood Derby.
The official Pinewood Derby RACE DAY is Saturday, November 7. Pack 48 Race Officials will run all cars for Pinewood Derby. Video will be taken to share for the event. Results will remain confidential until announced at the November Pack Meeting.
Awards will be given at our November Pack Meeting on November 18 for Speed, Most Original, Most Realistic and Workmanship.
Adults will vote for car designs on our website. Voting will begin Monday, November 9 and end Sunday, November 15. Voting details will be sent out via Scoutbook, our Pack Website blog and Pack Facebook site.
Scouts can finish the Pinewood Derby cars started in the spring. For any new scouts, or anyone who no longer has their car, please contact your den leader for assistance. All cars must begin as the Pack 48 official car kit to ensure it will run on our track.
Open class cars are available to purchase from Mr. Alfredo for $5 per car kit. Anyone can participate in the Open Class (scouts, siblings, parents, friends, ANYONE!).
If you need inspiration, Pinterest and YouTube have lots of ideas for design and explain the science behind making the fastest car. Craft stores and online sites have lots of ideas and options.
If you have ANY questions, please contact Mr. Alfredo, Mr. Travis or your den leader for help.
