2014 Pinewood Derby Rules and Reg

Rick Raynes, District Activities Chairman, announces that the York District Cub Scout Pinewood Derby is scheduled for April 5, 2014, hosted by Cub Scout Pack 355 and held at Sanford High School, Sanford, ME. The “OFFICIAL” York District Pinewood Derby Rules can be downloaded here. These are the rules by which EVERYONE who attends and races at the District Pinewood Derby will need to abide. PLEASE note a couple of important pieces of information:

  • Packs are entitled to create their own rules for their own Pack level Pinewood Derby. Please check with your Pack to make sure you comply with their rules. However, at the York District Pinewood Derby held on April 5 at Sanford High School, ONLY the “OFFICIAL” York District Pinewood Derby Rules will be used and everyone must comply with them.
  • There will be NO “Best of Show” competition at the York District Pinewood Derby. Only your three fastest drivers (and an alternate who only registers if needed) can compete at the District Derby. We encourage each Pack to recognize your own “Best of Show” car at the Pack level.
  • Only dry lubricant may be used. We understand that the Scout Shop sells a liquid lubricant, but that will not be allowed at the District Derby!

Registration for the Pinewood Derby is available through this downloadable fill-in form. Unit leaders should complete the form and send it to the council service center.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact either Rick Raynes or Owen McGuire. Gentlemen…. Start your carving! and by “Gentlemen”, we mean the BOYS!
