This year we had 20 Cubs entered in our pinewood derby. I think we also had one sister, but I'm not sure. We weren't really organized to accept sibling cars. She just brought one. She got to race it down the track, but I donlt think she received any recognitions. Anyway, NEXT year I want to do this better. We usually buy the cars for th scouts. We can't afford to buy cars for all the siblings and parents, but we might be able to if we made it a fundraiser. We usually try to raise a little money for Friends of Scouting during the pinewood derby by selling hotdogs and soda. What if ANYONE could build a car and race it for a fee? I'm thinking $10 would include the cost of the kit and a trophy or certificate. We coudl have a dad's division, mom's division, sister's division, brother's division, maybe others, maybe it should go by age. Maybe all the Boy Scouts in our associated troop would like to build cars again and race? Maybe all the Girl Scouts in town would like to come race? Hmmm.... What do you think? Have any of you ever tried anything like this? How did it go?
No announcement yet.
