Update: Pinewood Derby moved to Sunday at 5pm

On January 25, scouts and their families will descend upon the Lewis Mills High School Cafeteria for what has become the highlight for many scouts, the Pinewood Derby. The idea is simple, cut a block of wood and put four nails with wheels and see how fast your car can go. The challenge is getting your car within the specs. 


Not to fear, as we have a list of the rules for building a car and have many scouters who've gone through the process to help you navigate the challenges of the Pinewood Derby Car. The idea here is an activity for you to do with your scout, so the concept is fun.


Important dates to remember:

  • Jan 23, setup night at High School Cafeteria - 6:30 till Done
  • Jan 25, Pack meeting starts at 5PM

For more information, contact Bruce Politz.

Wait list opens for Nautical Nights at Battleship Cove
