Pinewood Derby Build Day - Jan 9, 10am, JSC Gilruth Center

posted Jan 6, 2016, 7:45 AM by Admin Pack958   [ updated Jan 6, 2016, 7:51 AM ]

Let's kick off 2016 by preparing your car for some Pinewod Derby racing action!  You should all have picked up your pinewood derby kit at the December pack meeting / holiday party.  If you were not at the party then please contact your den leader to obtain your kit since they picked up extras for anyone who was not there.

If you would like some help designing and building your car (especially if this is your first time, or need to borrow tools), we will be hosting our Pinewood Derby Build Day this coming Saturday.  Here are the details: 

Pinewood Derby Build Day

Where:                  JSC Gilruth Live Oak Pavilion (map attached below)

Day:                      Saturday, Jan. 9, 2016

Times:                   10am to noon

Tools available: one band saw, one belt sander, one drill press, and pit tools.

The Live Oak Pavilion is located on the south side of the Gilruth Center gym near the small jogging track.
Please have your design drawn on your car before you arrive to help save time with the tools!  

Information about the race, car categories, and car construction rules are included in the flyer file below.  You can also find lots of great tips and design ideas on the internet.
