Ten Steps to a Successful Pinewood Derby

STEP 1: Assign Date

  • Assign a Pack Meeting date for the Pinewood Derby. Make sure you schedule well in advance of Derby to assure the date.
  • Reconfirm prior to Derby night. Make sure that someone will be there to let you in (with a key!).
  • Typical Weekday evening time schedule

     Set Up                   5:30 - 6:30 p.m.

     Registration             6:30  (Webelos 1 hour later)

     Racing & Awards          7:00 - 8:30

     Tear down and clean up   8:30 - 9:30

  • Large Packs (50 or more Scouts), a Pre-Weigh-In, prior to Derby Night, is a MUST!
