Pinewood Derby

Pinewood Derby Championship, Saturday April 27th 

Pinewood Derby Championship Day Races will be held on Saturday, April 27th.  The top 3 racers from each Pack will compete against winners from other packs. Pinewood Derby Championship day has lots of activities for all Scouts even if you did not place in the top of your pack.  We have other races and fun activities that are open to everyone.

Location: Boys & Girls Club, 4201 Long Beach Blvd, Long Beach, CA 90807

2. Outlaw Race: This is open to anyone, any age, no rules! Well, no propulsion, rockets, super heavy weights. Let’s see how fast your car can go…within reason! Sat. 4/27, $5 (includes event patch)

3. Car Show and/or Loop Challenge: Car Show – We will showcase cars in a Car Show. These cars will not race (although they can be part of the Pack Races or Championships). Loop Challenge – Back by popular demand and lots of fun! Put your car on a loop to see if it survives. No guarantee. Your car might “crash and burn” so beware. Sat. 4/27, $5 (includes event patch)

4. Championship Race: The top 3 racers from your Pack will compete for the overall council championship title. Choose this only if you’ve completed your Pack race first. Sat. 4/27, $15 (includes event patch)
