Build Day is on January 21st, starting at 8 AM

This event is optional but recommended, especially if you have never raced. If you need assistance making your car from scratch, or if you need to weigh it and have a final tune-up, then come. All the necessary tools will be available under adult supervision to cut out and work on your car. Experienced adults will be on hand for anyone who needs pointers. However, if you cannot attend your assigned time, come at any time and take as long as you need with your car. Pinewood Derby Templates are located with this link
