The Pinewood Derby is the TOP event for Cub Scouts each year. This is one date that hardly anyone misses because it is just that much fun! Scouts build cars out of blocks of wood with help from their parents and decorate/style based on the theme or type of car they want to make. We race them for placement and use computer software and a digital timer to keep track of speed and time. We also have design awards. The top scouts move on to compete at the district race and if they are really fast Nationals in NYC!
