Pinewood Derby

RULES:  Please follow the Grizzly District Pinewood Derby Rules (available from your den leader or on the Links page) to be sure your car is not disqualified from racing.  In addition, note that DRY graphite is the only kind of lubrication allowed.

DESIGN IDEAS: Check out photos of past cars for design ideas:

WORKSHOP:  Our Webelos 2 den leader Jerry is hosting a workshop for those who may need help building their cars. He will have tools and supplies available as well as a scale for checking your car's weight prior to the official weigh-in. The workshop is scheduled for Saturday, March 8, from 9:00am - 5:00pm at 1104 S. Newer Rd.

WEIGH-IN: Weigh-in for our Pack Pinewood Derby is Friday, March 14, at 5:00pm at Adams Elementary.

DINNER: The pack will be providing pizza and drinks for Cub Scouts and their families during the weigh-in.

PACK RACE:  The Pack Pinewood Derby race is Friday, March 14, after the weigh-in is complete (approximately 6:30pm).

IMPOUND:  The first, second, third and fourth place cars will be impounded at the completion of the Pack Pinewood Derby until the District Pinewood Derby race.

OPEN RACE:  The fun doesn't stop after the pack race.  It will be followed by an open race for dads, moms, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, cousins, grandparents, and others who want to build their own cars or race cars from previous years.

DISTRICT RACE:  The District Pinewood Derby race will be on Saturday, March 29, at 8:30am at West Valley High School, 8301 E. Buckeye.

NOSTALGIA RACE:  The district will also have a Nostalgia Pinewood Derby like our open race, but for everyone in the Spokane Valley, the night before the district derby. The race will be held at West Valley High School at 7:00pm on Friday, March 28. There will be a nominal entry fee per car.
