This is an all family event, so bring the siblings and invite the grandparents.

1:00 PM – RACING STARTS
Pine Wood Derby car kits will be available for sale from your tribe chiefs. Cars can also be purchased from our Indian Scout Colin McBean. Colin will have a box of cars on his porch beginning tomorrow morning. No need to contact him, just show up and take as many cars as you need and leave cash in the mail box near his front door. Cars are $5 each on the honor system.
Please note that our Fox Nation Pine Wood car kits are custom kits and are NOT the ones used by the Boy Scouts or other Nations. You will ONLY be allowed to use a car from one of our approved kits.
Race rules, car weights and dimensions can be found here. Cars that do not meet the weight and dimension limits will NOT be eligible for a trophy. Cars will be weighed and measured during race registration. Basic tools will be available on site for last minute modifications but please bring any special tools or extra weights you might need if you’re close on weight.
