Pinewood derby Weigh in and race

posted Mar 23, 2021, 6:11 PM by Cubmaster Pack 29   [ updated Mar 23, 2021, 6:11 PM ]

OK-what would a Pack 29 event be this year without the threat of rain?
We are planning on having the pinewood derby rain or shine at Spring Villa campgrounds (1474 Co Rd 148, Opelika, AL 36804).  Bring some camp chairs.  This will be a social distance event (masks, space, etc.) will be enforced.  This event is also outside but we will have access to campground bathrooms.  There are a few different ways to get there.  One way is going out past the Lazy Bee on Moores Mill or Marvin's Parkway off the interstate the exit past Tiger Town going north
Here are key times:
Weight in event at the AUMC Annex parking lot area (where the popcorn payment/pickup was on Friday starting at 5:15 and ending at 6:15.  We will not have a test track time on Friday.
Families can come out around 11 am to see if the track is up to test run, but to no guarantee. 
Racing by den is below.  Attached are the rules for the derby.
There were some questions about the District PW derby this Saturday as well.  That is not our race, but scouts can go to that one.  It costs $5 and I don't think there are trophies for dens but are trophies for overall 1,2,3.  We will have those at our race and it is free.
We will keep an eye out on the weather, but we are leaning toward racing no matter what.  If you can help, that would be great but I also know that it fun to watch the scouts and racing.  Please stay in touch with your den leader for changes (rainout).
Let me know if there are any questions.
