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!

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.

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
