PINEWOOD DERBY 2019 (You may pick up cars at Den Meetings on Monday, 1/7/19, or at the Build Day. $4 for extra cars. There will be SPEED and STYLE Competitions.)

Saturday, January 12, from 9 am – 2 pm is our official PWD Build Day.

Location is the Fellowship Hall at Whitehouse UMC.

I have attached the rules and regulations for everyone to review (This includes dates and times).
These are strictly followed and not adhering to the rules will disqualify you from racing. We will have the cars there for purchase if you desire to compete in the OPEN derby. Please bring your car if you already picked yours up.

There is a method to Saturday's madness:

1. Pick out a template and cut out the template. Trace template onto the car. You’ll want to trace the template upside down for axle drilling. We do not use the precut axles that are on the block. We drill you new ones. Do NOT cut block yet.

2. Go to the axle drilling station next. IMPORTANT!!!

3. After this, you may choose which stations to go to……sawing out the template, drilling hole for weight, sanding, polishing axles and wheels.

Please remember to wear safety goggles, and keep an eye on your Scouts.

Please remember that everyone does NOT need to show up at 9 AM. Come as you please.
Don’t come too late as you might not be able to make all the stations.
This is a great way to get a headstart on your PWD car.
Style Competition: There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trophies for the style in each rank. We also will be giving certificates for cars, overall, in the following categories:
— Best Paint
— Judges Favorite
— Most Detail
— Most Humorous
— Most Patriotic
— Most Unusual
— Most Scout Spirit
Happy Building!
Yours in Scouting,
D. Jason Phillips
