Car Cutting Clinic TODAY!!


Car Cutting Clinics TODAY from 1-6 p.m.

Expect to need at least an hour to complete the work at the clinic. At the clinics, each participant will have their car cut and learn to sand and shape their race car. You will go home with the kit and continue to sand and then paint your car. Cars can be designed for creativity or speed. Have fun with your designs!

The cost of the kit this year is $4.50 at the Scout Store. I will purchase the kits ahead of the clinic and have them available for each participant to purchase at cost from

Please sign up for your clinic time below. Email me if this weekend does not work for you. I will hold additional clinics, if needed, to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to participate.
