Pinewood Derby

It's time to get ready for Pack 227 Pinewood Derby!  Here's all the information you need to know to participate in this fun event.  It is a highlight of the Cub Scout year.

Mark your calendars:  Pinewood Derby 2016 will be held in the afternoon on January 30, 2016.
All registered Cub Scouts receive one official derby car kit and entrance into the official Pinewood Derby race.

Parents and siblings can race, too!  Extra kits are available for $5 each.  All non-scouts also pay a $5 entry fee on race day.  Parents and siblings can build cars using "modified" rules (see below).

The Derby will take place at St. Max in O'Reilly hall and is conducted by a professional track master.

Not sure how to build a Pinewood Derby car?  No problem!  Pack 227 will host Pinewood Derby build clinics on Saturday, January 9th, and Saturday, January 16th.  Both build clinics will be held at St. Max.  Tools and help available during the clinic.

The following document contains detailed information about the rules for building a Pinewood Derby car.

So start planning your design, gather your sandpaper and paint, and get ready for the Pinewood Derby!
