Pinewood Derby Saturday!

Gentlemen, start your engines! Or rather, prepare to take maximum advantage of gravity!

Pinewood Derby is finally here, we’re going to have a great time! Here are some important reminders:

  • Derby is at Crosspoint CRC in Chino.
  • Registration 11-12; DO NOT BE LATE, after we close registration we need to get started organizing all the heat schedules, and we cannot add late checkins or we have to start all over.
  • Car Judging 12-12:30; for design prizes.
  • Begin Racing 12:30
  • Parking will be in the front by the preschool and adminastation office (main Entrance on Edison is the best entrance)
  • Registration tables will be located out side in front by the water feature. 
  • Racing will  be in the fellowship hall.
  • Bring extra money for lunch and snack bar.
  • Don’t forget your cars.
  • No application of graphite onsite! (only before arrival)

See you at the races.
