Look for notices for the next one in April 2018 


District Championship Pinewood Derby May 5, 2018

Official Derby Website:  https://auroracubspwd.weebly.com/

The basic layout will be the same.  The Event is held as a co operative event.
If you son is racing, their parent / adult is helping.  
When making a car for the pack event, make sure you are following the District Derby Rules (See below).  

Cost - $10 per family, It was agreed upon to collect $10 from each family to cover the cost of awards for the event. Any remaining funds will be given to the Aurora District.  You may pay with cash, check made payable to BSA or with credit card (John Padgett will be there with his square during registration, to accept payments).
 
Volunteer Jobs- This event is 100% run by parent volunteers, who have Scouts participating in the event.  I still have some parents that have not signed up for a job.  A few things we still need covered are: snacks, juice, coffee and clean up help.  Please update sheet directly through the google share or email directly.
 
 

Developing the Rules: Pack, District, and Council 
The traditional rules for the design of the pinewood derby car are included with each official pinewood derby car. Actually they have not changed substantially since Cubmaster Murphy began the derby in 1953. However, as you must know, there are rules, and then there are the rules.
