2009 Pinewood Derby

ALL 2009 Pinewood Derby events will be held at the Hygiene United Methodist Church.

Derby 101 Night

If you would like to learn the fine art of pine wood derby car making, come to the Derby 101 Night on Friday 7:00pm, January 9th, 2009 at the Hygiene United Methodist Church, . A video will be shown titled, "Physics and the Pinewood Derby".  Derby coordinators will review the rules and demonstrate their application.  We will be using last years District rules.

Derby Check-In Night
Derby check-in night is planned for Friday, Jan 23, 2009, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.  Check-in your derby cars the night before the big race.  Judges will verify your car meets derby rules and store it in the garage for the race tomorrow.

Derby Race Day
Pinewood derby race day will run all day on Saturday, Jan 24, 2009, starting at 9:00am.  Races will be conducted by dens throughout the morning.  Den winners will then race each other to determine the Pack champions who will represent us in the District derby.  Craftsmanship awards will also be judged.  A more precise derby agenda will be available once we get a better idea on the number of cars entered.
