Pinewood Derby: Last May in your planning meeting, you decided that you wanted your January activity to be a Boy Scout Pinewood Derby. Beginning with the November 18 meeting, we will begin taking orders for the Pinewood Derby car kits (pay Troop Treasurer Mrs. Landeros, or her deputy).
In order to participate in the Pinewood Derby in January, you have to make a new car. The kits will be $10 which includes the “entry fee” for the Boy Scout Pinewood Derby.
What is the difference between Boy Scout and Cub Scout Pinewood Derby? In Boy Scouts, you make your own car . Of course you can consult with your dad, or use any other adult as a resource (in Boy Scouts we use our resources), but YOU must do the work and racing yourself.
Cars must be paid for by December 16 so they can be worked on over Christmas break. The Patrol Leader’s Council decided to have our Pinewood Derby with Pack 205. The date will be Sunday, March 21, 2010.
Questions: Ask Mr. Hadden; he is an expert on this.
Parents: We will need volunteers for this, including scoring, weighing, etc.
Here’s the tentative Schedule:
November 18 – December 9: Pay your $10 and order your Pinewood Derby Car kits.
December 16: Pinewood Derby kits are delivered and handed out to the Scouts so they can be worked on over Christmast break.
January 6: Bring your Pinewood Derby car and your knife and plan to work on your car at the meeting.
January 13: Troop Elections and Pinewood Derby Car weigh in.
March 21: Pinewood Derby Competition with Pack 205
As we get closer to the date, this schedule will be clarified further.
