White Horse District Pinewood Derby
Race Results Are Posted!
Become one of the millions of Cub Scouts who have been building and racing Pinewood Derby® cars since 1953. Partnered with a parent or adult mentor, Cub Scouts work together, strengthening bonds and building confidence – and their own custom race cars! They begin by choosing a car design, then carve it out and detail it with paint, decals and other accessories, and perfect strategies to compete in their pack's own Pinewood Derby. It's s a wonderful learning experience centered on teamwork, ingenuity and sportsmanship – all for the thrill of the race and a lifetime of great memories to share with fellow racers young and old.

Hotdogs, chips, and water bottles will be provided. If you would like any other beverages, please bring your own. Also feel free to bring lawn chairs or a picnic blanket to sit on while you eat.
Each of the stations is movie-related and it will be a lot of fun! We have also incorporated “An American Tail: Fievel Goes West” station and that station will be BB shooting. Participants will be asked to score the stations as they go from station to station. (A score sheet and more information will be provided at check-in.)
