Greetings Race Fans!
It's that time again! I'm a second year leader with the first time
responsibility of putting together the Pinewood Derby for our pack. What I'm
looking for is any and ALL information that might be helpful in pulling this
off, especially info on how to run a double elimination race.
Secondly, I wanted to ask everyones opinion on the use of those store bought
kits in the Derby. I heard there were no rules barring the use of these kits
but I think there should be. Last year the overall winner in our Den used one
and was clearly a Dad build car. I thought this was quite lame and many
people also conveyed the same feelings to me. I want to make an announcement
at the Pack Meeting concerning this issue so if you have an opinion, I'd love
to hear it.
So, as always, thanks in advance for your attention and responses.....all are
Den Leader - Pack
