The Pinewood Derby
Anyone familiar with Cub Scouts is no stranger to the Pinewood Derby, one of scouting's flagship events. The Pinewood Derby is a fun, educational way for youths to learn how to design a fast car using nothing but their imagination and a few simple tools. It also teaches scouts about good sportsmanship in a competitive setting. The scout with the fastest car is extended an invite to the District Finals where they will compete with scouts from a number of other packs in the area. In the past, scouts from Pack 507 have proudly represented Winchester at the Regional Finals where they competed against the best cars from scouts in other districts (only missing their shot at National Finals by one spot)!
When designing your car, please refer to the official Flintlock District Pinewood Derby Rules.
