January Pack Meeting 1/18 and Pinewood Derby Turn-In
The upcoming Pack meeting on Thursday, January 18, in the Vineyard Ranch cafeteria is the turn-in date for all the Pinewood Derby cars. It’s a full-meeting night that will include patches and awards for popcorn sales and any advancements scouts have completed. Scouts needing last-minute help with their Pinewood Derby cars to get them ready for the turn-in will be able to work on them during the meeting.
The Pinewood Derby Races will be held January 20. Judging for design categories starts at 1:45pm with the speed races beginning at 2pm. As always, Scouts will complete for the fastest car within each Den. The Den winners and next three fastest cars will go on to complete in the finals for the fastest car in the Pack. The design award categories this year are: Most Patriotic, Most Scout-Like, Most Texan, Most Humorous, Fastest Looking, and Most Creative. Links to the rules and schedule are below:
For extra tips and testing, there is also an event at the Musselman Scout Shop this Saturday where you can drop-in any time between 10am and 2pm to check out demos of tools, weigh cars, and make test runs on a track.
