Our Pinewood Derby is run by a computer software system that calculates the winners
by time. The software races all of the ranks (age groups) together. Each scout will race on each of the 4 lanes. The time is calculated and averaged out over the four races the scouts car will run to determine the winners.
When registering the scouts Pinewood Derby car, the car must meet all of the
guidelines and regulations contained in the 2016 Narragansett Council Rules. There will be equipment available to make adjustments to weight if necessary. Registration will close at 10:45 am on Saturday. This means that no further work can be done on the race cars. If you feel it may need adjusting, we would advise that you come early.
While you may have a scale at home or use the post office scale, we will judge
the weight by the scale the Pack has so it is fair and consistent across the board.
Every effort will be made to run ALL scout derby cars as long as the car meets
all other guidelines and registration deadlines set.
DERBY CAR NUMBERS ARE ASSIGNED BY THE CUBMASTER AND HANDED OUT AT THE PINEWOOD DERBY WORKSHOP
