The 2017 Pinewood Derby will soon be upon us. Below are some details about the event and associated activities:

Friday, January 27th, 7-9pm – Track Setup and Registration (Milford First United Methodist Church): Friday night will be for track set up and car inspection/ registration. We are following a little departure this year, as all cars will be impounded Friday evening after the weigh in. If you are not able to bring your son’s car for inspection Friday night, please notify your den leader.

Saturday, January 28rd, 9am-12pm – Pinewood Derby (Milford First United Methodist Church): Racing will begin promptly at 9am, so plan to arrive between 8:30 and 8:45am. We will have activities for scouts and siblings, and the Boy Scout troop will be selling refreshments during the event.

We are working on scheduling a Tuning Night at Boyd prior to the event. Watch out for another email about that.

We are looking for parent volunteers to help out with different areas of the event:

  • Track setup and tear down
  • Food sales
  • Activities
  • Race pit crew
