On February 9, 2018, we will have our monthly Pack meeting at Ellsworth Hill gym/cafeteria. This month’s theme is the Pinewood Derby Design Contest. Scouts should wear their Class As with neckerchiefs. As usual, the Pack meeting will begin promptly at 7:00, with gathering activities beginning at 6:45 (but you may want to arrive earlier). Upon arrival, and before the 7:00 start, each Scout (and sibling) should:

  1. Register the car – each car will be assigned a unique number
  2. Enter the car in the appropriate category for the design contest (see below)
  3. Check car weight on the official Pack scale
  4. Enter the guessing game
  5. Participate in pre-meeting activity/game

Scouts should choose one of the following categories for the design contest:

  • Fastest Looking
  • Most Patriotic
  • Most Unique
  • Best Paint / Decals
  • Coolest Looking
  • Most Futuristic (new category)
  • Best Food Design (new category)
  • Best Animal Design (new category)
  • Best Sibling Design

Please ask your Scout to decide on the category he wants to enter before arriving at the meeting. Siblings are eligible to enter cars in the “Best Siblings Car” category. Awards will be given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each category, as voted on by the Scouts (only Scouts vote, no siblings).

If your son wants to incorporate his Pinewood Derby car number into his design, his assigned car number can be found here.
