Scouts-L Mail Archive for December of 1999: It's Pinewood Derby Time!
It's Pinewood Derby Time!
Mon, 20 Dec 1999 11:08:02 -0500
Now that our Christmas Party is over I'm turning my attention
to my favorite event in Cub Scouts. This year my Webelos Den
will be making a finish line signal for our Pinewood Derby Race.
I have tons of info and links re: building the cars, running the race
and the kinds of awards to hand out but, I'm coming up short on
info on how to build a simple yet, reliable finish line signal. It
could be electrical, battery powered, or mechanical. But, it
needs to be basic enough for my first year Webelos to build
(and to understand would be nice too!).
While I'm working on a design myself I thought I'd touch base
with the experts, or should I say the experienced ones?
Do any of you out there have any plans, links or suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
