PINEWOOD DERBY


EVENT DATES: 11/11/2016 - 11/11/2016

A special Pinewood Derby Race is being held on Friday, November 11 at the Cape Cod Mall food court. This iconic Cub Scouting activity is open to all Cub Scouts and Scout Alumni of any age.

Every boy who joins Cub Scouting this fall will be provided with a Pinewood Derby Car kit. Following the theme of “Build An Adventure”, the Pinewood Derby will be one of the first adventures these boys experience.

First begun in the 1950’s, the Pinewood Derby is almost synonymous with Cub Scouting. Cars are made from a simple block of pine about 7 inches long. Wheels are attached with nails, the block can be carved into almost any desired shape, accessories added, and a car is created! Cars can take on the shape of a race car, trucks, hot dogs, pencils, or anything the imagination can invent. Cars cannot exceed weight and size specifications.

Registration for the race will open at 12:15 PM and the first race will begin at 1:00. There is no fee to participate.
