The annual Pack 3322 Pinewood Derby race will be held Saturday, February 10, at 9:00 am at Ellsworth Hill Elementary School. Scouts should wear their Class A uniforms with neckerchiefs. The schedule for the event will be as follows:
- 8:15 am – Arrive; open track time; check in your cars
- 9:00 am – All cars must be at the venue AND checked in AND passed inspection by 9:00; otherwise they will not be eligible to race
- 9:30 am – Racing will start. Racing will be intra-den at first, beginning with the Lion den and continuing through to the Webelos II den. The top three racers from each den will be awarded a medal. The top three from each den will advance to the Pack Finals (see below).
We expect racing to be done around noon.
We prefer to sing the National Anthem prior to this event. If you have a son (or daughter or you) who would like to lead us, please let me know. If not, I may be forced to lead us, and no one wants that.
The Pack Finals will consist of ALL of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners from EACH DEN. We have a total of 6 Dens in our Pack. Thus, there will be a total of 18 boys/cars racing in the Finals. Awards will be presented to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place for the Pack Finals. Those three Scouts will be eligible to participate in the MOE District Pinewood Derby on Saturday, April 7 in Cuyahoga Falls.
In addition to Scout races, after the Pack Finals there will be a siblings/parents race, so feel free to have your daughters or other sons construct cars to race too. Medals will be awarded to the fastest three sibling cars. Fast parent cars earn bragging rights. Extra kits can be purchased at Kamper City or the Scout Shop. If you plan on entering a sibling or parent car, please register through this link by February 3rd. With this information, we can input the names into the software prior to the big day, which helps run the event smoothly.
The Pack will operate a simple concession stand for breakfast items at a nominal charge. We’ll be selling donuts, coffee, and bottled water while supplies last. Cost is $1.00 per item, and we offer free refills on coffee.
