The straight answer: Our district allows 1 car per age group.
The more meaningful answer:
It depends on how large the district is and how many lanes the
pinewood derby track has. Make sure the event goes the
appropriate length for the attention span of the cubs. With that
condition in mind, have the largest possible number of cubs
This is my personal opinion and I know my district does NOT
share my opinion: Don't waste your limited leader pool to
organize events where only a few cubs can participate. Use
your resources to benefit the largest number of cubs possible.
