What is the Pinewood Derby?
The Pack’s Pinewood Derby Event is a parent/guardian and son team event,and is recommended as such by the National Boy Scouts of America.
The Pinewood Derby Committee STRONGLY SUGGESTS that each parent emphasize this idea with your son.
Two things the Pinewood Derby requires each participant to learn are
- The craft skills necessary to build a car
- The rules that must be followed
It is a wonderful tool to teach sportsmanship and having respect for other people. It offers a fine way to help parents and cubs bond and work together to achieve a common goal and hopefully make it clear that every scout can come away from the pinewood derby a winner.
Every scout, parent, friend and supporter of the pack will leave the race excited about next year’s Pinewood Derby!
