About the event

The derby will test the racers creativity and craftsmanship. Racers will hand-craft their cars and enter them into the competition where they’ll be judged on design & speed. The cars will reach speeds over 300 mph as they race down the 64-foot-long, 12-foot-high track.

The standard Derby cars start as a block of wood 7 inches long by 1.75 inches wide by 1.25 inches high. The block is un-sanded with grooves cut in the bottom side to accept the axles. The weight can’t exceed 5 ounces. You can purchase car kits from the Longhouse at Tobogganing, Camp Fitch or by contacting the event OIC. According to the rules, you may not use a previous year’s car. The official Pinewood Derby Rules will be made available at time of purchase. Buy your cars early so you have time to design, build and test your RACE CAR.

The races will be combined Native Sons and Daughters, broken down into divisions based on age only. All racers must check-in ½ hour prior to their scheduled race time. Once the cars are checked in, they are placed in a holding area and may not be modified until racing is complete.

There will be trophies awarded but every racer goes home a winner! This is a FAMILY event, and there’ll be plenty of fun for everyone so be sure to invite grandparents, neighbors, relatives, friends, EVERYONE! Invite perspective members too!!

This is one of our most fun events of the year! You don’t want to miss out on this one!

The Longhouse will be selling pizza/snacks/beverages throughout race day.
