The registration form is online and you retrieve it here – Pinewood Entry Form

Please download, print and complete it for all Cadets attending the Pinewood Derby.  There is not going to be early (on-line) registration.

In September 2013, the Executive Board determined some rules changes for the derby.

  • Kits acquired from S&W will be provided to all clubs.
  • Allow the registrar to interview the Head Counselor in any case where the Cadet’s car workmanship is questioned.
  • Allow the registrar to interview any Cadet whose car is questionable to determine if the Cadet did the majority of the work.
  • Allow the registrar to disqualify any car whose workmanship is questioned.
  • Require Head Counselor certification of all cars entered into the derby by Cadets from his club.
  • Require the Cadet to present his car at the registration table on the day of the derby.
