January 2018 Pack Meeting is Race Time !!!

The Pinewood Derby and  Rain Gutter Regatta is a signature event for any Cub Scout Pack—it is definitely for YOUR pack! The Pack purchased a car or boat for every Scout. You will receive your car/boat at the December Pack Meeting. If you are unable to make it to the Pack meeting and still need a Derby car or Regatta Boat Kit, you can pick one up at the Derby Clinic on Sunday, Jan. 8th. You can also see your Den Leader or Cubmaster if you still need one. 

Siblings are welcome to get a car and participate in the sibling race also!

Lion and Tiger Cubs will be racing boats in the Rain Gutter Regatta and all other scouts will be racing cars in the Pinewood Derby.  

The Webelos Café will be open for those that build up an appetite during the meeting     

See Race Rules under Helpful Links

Derby Weigh-In
January 18th is a mandatory weigh‐in from 6:00 ‐ 8:00 PM at the First Presbyterian Church. Please take note that you will surrender your car/boat once it has been weighed until after the derby race. This rule is necessary to ensure that the cars are not modified after they qualify at the weigh‐in. For the Lions and Tigers, you can try out your boat. Please see the Race Rules to ensure your car or boat is ready to go for the racing.

Race Day! 
Derby Races will be on January 19th starting at 6:30 PM. There will be awards for the top winners in each rank and then also overall pack winners. We will also have pack winners for Best Design and Best Paint Job.
