I just did a county fair in August. We were asked at the last minute to
do a Pinewood Derby exhibit. The trouble, is they didn't know what
requirements to do a pinewood derby was, so they put us on a stage
16x20 feet. Pinewood Derby tracks are 32 feet long. We ended up
running it on the grass near the stage. Fortunatly, I had some
baracades to help mark off the area. Next year, we will be better
There was also a OA exhibit the whole time there, with Teepes, dancing
and the such. It looked pretty good. I didn't get to see much of it
