2018’s Long Trail District Pinewood Derby will be held Saturday April 7th in the gymnasium of the Spaulding High School in Barre, VT. Registration starts at 10:00 am and racing at 11:30 am.
This Pinewood Derby is open to ALL Cub Scouts in the Long Trail District!
This activity allows each Cub Scout to build a Pinewood Derby car each year with the assistance and guidance of an adult. The Cub Scout is encouraged to do as much of the design and craftsmanship himself with minimal help from adult supervision. The Cub Scout should learn about completing a project, as well as fair and honest sportsmanship in competition.
It is critical that Cub Scouts compete against only Cub Scouts, and not enthusiastic adults. All adult leaders and relatives of the Cub Scout are encouraged to build a car of their own and enter in the “Open Class” category if they want to participate. The “Open Class” rules for the cars are the same criteria used for the Cubs. Your car must meet the requirements.
You will want to read the entire Pinewood Derby Rules document. Specific details of the car dimensions and weight are all provided there.
To attend you should register with your pack. While it is possible to register at the door it is cheaper to register ahead of time with your pack. Cub Leaders can download and print the registration form.
In addition we have made a flyer that you can print for publicizing the event with your unit.
