Pinewood Derby Weigh-Ins! Jan 18th and 19th

Start your engines!

The official Pinewood Derby weigh-ins will be held at Lisa Wille’s residence this year on:

Friday, January 18th 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Saturday, January 19th, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

The address will be:

11675 Highland Colony Dr.                                                                                          Roswell, GA 30075

Last minute adjustments will be allowed to all race cars, but as a reminder, here are the dimensions and weight:

1.Width shall not exceed 2-3/4 inches.
2.Length shall not exceed 7 inches.
3.Weight shall not exceed 5 ounces.

The weight does include tires, axles and paint. We will have a postal scale that we will use to weight all cars.  We suggest you try to get the weight as close to 5 oz. as possible without going over, and we will have tools available to try to shed some weight if you are over.

All cars will be kept by the judges until race day once the car is checked in and weighed.  They will be given an official race number, but we ask that all scouts come up with a name for their car when they are registered.

If your scout cannot make the race on January 20th, their car can still be raced, so please make sure to try to get to one of the weigh-ins.

If you have any questions whatsoever, please feel free to email either Robert Payne, Pack 471 Committee Chair rjlpayne@gmail.com, or Dan Betts, Pack 471 Cubmaster at dbetts@ging.org
