SIGN UP HERE for the car cutting clinic Sunday, November 10th. The clinic will run from 1:30-6:30. I strongly encourage everyone to come today. We have great weather today, so beat the cold by not waiting until the December clinic!

Each scout will receive a car at no cost this year (siblings are welcome to purchase a kit and participate $4.50).

What to do at the clinic:

  • Design a car for creativity or speed…. your choice!

  • Your design will get cut out into a rough shape and roughly sanded

  • You will grind and polish your axles to improve your speed.

  • Take home your car and sandpaper to smooth it out and paint at home!

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!

Car Cutting Clinic Sign Up Sheet

pinewood_derby_logoUse this link to sign up for a 1 hour time slot. This will help me organize the flow of racers at my home shop. If you would like to complete your kit at home, just stop by to purchase your kits and ask any questions before your go.

This year we have reduced the number of fundraisers for Pack 1863. As a result, we will need to have every participant purchase their own kits. 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 me.racing-main

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.

Weekend Updates

WE NEED BOXES! Specific size: paper ream/ banker boxes


I have updated the website with an overall route map that includes all the dens. Now you can simply open your phone to check your routes!!

Reminders:

  • Safety First!
    • Parents should be taking the donations from the scouts and putting them into the cars.
    • Kids should not be leaving the sidewalks to go into the streets or crossover without supervision.
    • Stay with kids when they need to wait for a neighbor to go inside and gather collections.
    • Do NOT let them go inside of people’s homes. If they have an emergency, please have an adult from our group supervise them.
  • We need 1 Driver for each Den/ Group to drive the routes and act as a mobile collection point. Please see me at arrival if you would like to volunteer.
  • Please knock on doors! We have seen a dramatic increase in donations when we started knocking. Many people just simply forget.
