Scouts, start your engines! The Pack 910 Pinewood Derby is this weekend.
Note that there are important times to remember for Friday afternoon and Saturday morning:
- Check-in / Practice: Friday (2/1) at 4:30–6:00 PM
- Please be prepared to leave your car at the church after the check-in/practice session on Friday. If you cannot make the check-in/practice session, please send your car with another Scouting family or contact Matthew to discuss other arrangements. Cars must adhere to the Pinewood Derby Rules in order to be checked in or to race.
- Races: Saturday (2/2) at 9:00–11:00 AM
- We use an advanced software system to coordinate and monitor races. We will queue up the cars and post results immediately.
All events are in the Colhoun Room at St Paul’s (where we typically have Pack Meetings).
Remember that the Pinewood Derby is a great chance to talk with your Scouts about sportsmanlike behavior and the opportunity to encourage their friends and celebrate everyone’s achievements. Help Scouts anticipate how it might feel to lose a race and how they should react, as well as how they should react if they win.
See you at check-in!
