Pack 191 holds their pinewood derby on an annual basis. In the past it has always been in January. Why January? Good question. Some may say its because its winter and we need indoor events because of the cold. It could also be because there is always a special guest that shows up at our Christmas party in December and gives all the boys pinewood derby car kits!
The track may look a little different than what many of us remember from our scouting days. The track is much longer and made from aluminum. Cars glide along the smooth track at scale speeds over 130 MPH! Race format is all computerized and scoring is electronic. Results and race information are displayed on the wall from a projector.
More information will be posted about the upcoming pinewood derby as its gets closer. For now take a look at some of the shots from the last couple of years.
