It's time again for the Pack 750 Pinewood Derby. Time to find out who will be going on to the District and Council races at Scout Fair in April, and who will be going to cheer on our winner!

Volunteers needed!

Signup sheet here:

Race Day Schedule is here (second tab):

We can't make this event happen without your help! Please help set a great example for our Scouts by volunteering your time to help make this event a big success!

The Friday evening before the race, we are looking for parents to help with setup at St. Elisabeth Seton. Many hands make light work. We will have access around 4pm.

The day of the races, we need parents to help out with a variety of tasks. Please see the google signup sheet above.

Don't know how to do something, but you're willing to help out? On the job training is available! That's how the rest of us learned, and we still have all of our fingers, right?

Specifications for constructing your Scout's derby car
The San Diego-Imperial Council has published the specifications for the San Diego 500 (the District- and Council-level Pinewood Derby races). In order for our Scouts' cars to be eligible for the races at Scout Fair in April, all cars must comply with the Council specifications. They can be found here:

Remember that it is the race scale, not your home scale, that will determine whether or not your Scout's car complies with the weight limits. It's a good idea to have at least some of the weights easily removable without damaging your car to make last-minute adjustments to comply with the rules. Similarly, the official "size box" will be what determines length and width compliance. The geometry limits are to ensure that the track and timing equipment are not damaged by any of the derby cars. Also, the goal here is for the Scout to learn about building a derby car and have fun doing it, not for the parents to make the car *they* want.

There will be an 'OPEN' race time slot for family members, but cars must still meet SDIC specs. Cars that do not meet San Diego 500 specs have the potential to damage our track.
