Pinewood Derby Workshop THIS weekend!

Great news! Our much-anticipated Pinewood Derby Workshop will be this Sunday at the Mixxer Community Makerspace!

Brand New Format: Pinewood Derby Workshop!

Scoutmaster Dyer has secured a new, unique experience for the Pack this Sunday at the Mixxer at 4pm!

The Mixxer is an amazing makerspace – cool concept taking root in Winston. This is a big deal for our scouts and will give them a way to make a car like no other! Staff from the Mixxer will be on site to help us use the tools safely, and they’ve got some pretty incredible tools! The Pack is paying for use of the space and providing it at no cost to Pack families. When: Sunday 2/27 from 4:00 to 5:00 pm
Where: The Mixxer, 1375 North Martin Luther King Jr. Dr.
Winston-Salem, NC 27101

What to Bring: Your car! If you did not pick up a car at the Pack meeting, we will have cars for you to pick up.
Important: For everyone in the building, you must have a completed waiver. Please complete a child waiver for every child, and an adult waiver for every adult.

Please complete the waivers and send them to me in an email (cell phone pic is fine). It will be important to have this done ahead of time so we can get to work. You can also bring a paper copy to me if you’re not able to get a digital copy in advance.

We recommend you arrive about 5 minutes early so we can take full advantage of the hour we have scheduled!

How else to prepare? Design your car in advance so you come ready to get to work on it! See below for some great resources that will get the creative ideas flowing! Remember, this is to be done by your scouts, it is THEIR project. We are here to help, not take over. Don’t be “that dad” or mom!!

Be sure to read and adhere to the Pinewood Derby Rules in your design!

There is otherwise no Pack meeting this weekend, nor is there a Pack meeting next weekend (March 6).

New River Camping May 20 – 22
Camping right on the New River Trail, this is a relaxed and very family friendly camping trip in Galax, VA. An easy drive from Winston, it’s a fun trip and we do an easy, slow-paced bike ride too.

Be sure to get Resident Camp at Raven Knob on your calendar now – your scout will create lasting memories and work on rank advancement too. If you can’t attend the whole time, you still have the option of attending some of the days.
