TRAINING TIP

Pinewood Derby

This is one of the most popular and successful family activities in Cub Scouting.  Pinewood derby cars are simply small wooden models, made by boys with help from their families, and raced in competition.  The cars are gravity powered and run down a regulation track.  The pinewood derby is an annual event in most packs, and can be run indoors or outdoors.  Every boy can design and build his own "grand prix" car to enter in the race.

Pinewood derby car kits are available from your local Scouting distributor, along with pinewood derby ribbons, medals, and trophies.

The above information was taken from the "Cub Scout Leader Book", Special Activities section, Chapter 9, available at your Scout Shop.
