District Pinewood Derby
April 12-13, 2019
The pinewood derby is one of the most popular and successful family activities in Cub Scouting. Pinewood derby cars are small wooden models that Cub Scouts make with help from their families. Then they race the cars in competition. The cars are powered by gravity and run down a track. Every Cub Scout can design and build their own grand prix car to enter in the race. Win or lose, Scouts will take pride in having done their best. Scouts learn craft skills, the rules of fair play, and good sportsmanship—things they will remember for life.
Scouts who placed first, second or third in their rank in their pack's pinewood derby can participate in the district pinewood derby. The event is being held at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church (715 Carrell St, Tomball, TX 77375 - Bollinger Hall).
June 11-14, 2019 | 2:00 - 8:00 pm
