Pinewood Derby – Preparations February 3, 2010

Filed under: Cub Scouts — Melissa @ 12:00 pm

Earlier in the month we had a workshop  down at the Scout Hut. It was a time when the Cub Scouts could come down, use templates if needed, and get some help on cutting out their cars for the upcoming Pinewood Derby.

We didn’t have a huge turnout for the workshop, but we don’t do it for the masses. We mostly do it for those boys whose dads are deployed and whose moms might need some assistance with how to do this car building thing.  We also had a couple new families come by…when new families join Cub Scouts most don’t even know what  Pinewood Derby is!

Roy was the official cutter as the boys aren’t allowed to use power tools (except a Dremel) while at a Cub Scout function.

Roy also had some hand saws, files, and sand paper for the boys to use themselves.

See our red Pack t-shirts?? Aren’t they fabulous?! I’ll share pictures from the Pinewood Derby in a few days!

    Eddie and the kiddos have had fun in the past making derby cars. How many are in your scout troop?

    Great pictures! We are all set for the derby! I still need to get some weight on their cars…we’ll see if I can still make that happen. lol
