Weigh In & Car Impounding: Thursday, March 1st
Pinewood Derby Race: Saturnday, March 3rd at Noon in the Robinson Cafeteria
Please be advised that these rules have recently been updated.
The Narragansett Council Pinewood Derby Committee has elected to exercise its
prerogative of adding to the National BSA Cub Scout Pinewood Derby Rules. These additional rules have been deemed appropriate to minimize any special design advantages.
The objective of the Pinewood Derby is to allow a Cub Scout advised and assisted by an adult to design and build a new wood car each year from the Official BSA Pinewood Derby Kit. The Pinewood Derby is not intended to be a contest of expensive and exotically built cars using special fabricated components of metal, plastic, or wood. These cars are subject to disqualification.
The purchase of speed axles, light weight wheels, and any axle and wheel modifications beyond minor sanding and polishing are prohibited. Cars, wheels, or axles may not be worked by commercial third party facilities for tuning or performance enhancements. (Wheels modified and lightened by removing material from inside of the wheel are easily recognized during inspection.) Cars with illegal wheels and axles will be disqualified during check in and technical inspection.
A Pinewood Derby car purchased fully completed and ready to race is prohibited.
The Regional and Council Pinewood Derby is by advanced registration only.
2018 Rules Additions:
A. No built in power source. No batteries. No solar cells.
B. No lights of any type. No material that that will reflex light.
C. No extra wheels as an accessory. See rule 15.
The top racers from each pack will move on to the Regional Race, the Cub Master will register the Scouts. The Cub Master is responsible to fully inspect all cars before they are registered for the Regional Race. Registration must be completed online in advance of the race.
Category Trophies will be awarded at the Regional Pinewood Derby Race as follows: Best Paint Job, Most Aerodynamic, Most Scout Spirit, Most Realistic, Most Accessorized, Most Humorous, Most Patriotic, Most Original, The Car Most Likely Built by a Cub Scout, and Judge’s Choice.
