Pinewood Derby

The Pinewood Derby is a scouting tradition.  Scouts and their families work together building relationships to craft and design cars from small blocks of wood.  The Pinewood Derby is held in January.   Race day is filled with pride and accomplishment as the scouts show off their cars.  The scouts learn the excitement of competition and good sportsmanship.
