Pinewood Derby - CHECK IN 1/10/16; RACE 1/11/16!!

Posted on Jan 9 2016 - 10:51pm

Hello Pack 3179 Families,
It's that time!  Hope all those cars are done and ready to race!  Pinewood Derby check in is Sunday, January 10, from 9-1 at the VFW, 3801 Market, Ventura.  Like last year, this coincides with the Pancake Breakfast!  Make sure to have have some pancakes while you check in those cars.  

For the check in, your car should be finished and ready to race.   It will be inspected and then kept by the race officials for the race the next day.  A few reminders:
     -You'll have a chance to test your car on the track at check in.
     -We encourage everyone to have their cars as close to the maximum weight of 5 ounces as possible.  The car kit as it comes in the box weighs about 3.5 ounces, so most cars need extra weight.  You can use washers, coins, or other kinds of specially made weights.  We will have a few weights (and of course, scales) at the check in, but we encourage people to bring their own weights.
     -Besides weights, we will have graphite for the axles, glue and some tools for the last minute repairs.
     -Remember, please DO NOT glue or cover the car's axles!

If you are unable to bring your car then, please contact one of us.

As you know, this is a BIG event and we still need additional volunteers to make it run successfully.  Please let us know if you are interested.  No prior experience necessary!!  

Race Day:  Please note that this pack meeting/Derby Race takes place at Balboa Middle School, which is just north of our normal meeting place at Mound Elementary, and that we will begin at 5:00 with dinner, followed by the start of racing at about 5:45 on 1/11/16. 

Please feel free to contact either of us with any questions.
