Fall 2020 Pinewood Derby car races planned

We are planning to race Pinewood Derby cars outdoors this fall, fairly soon, to make up for the Derby we missed last spring (with Scouts using the cars they built last winter/spring). Arrow of Light Scouts who crossed over last spring to Boy Scouts will be invited to our fall races.

We are planning to hold races in heats by Den, in small groups, at assigned times. Championship races, amongst Den winners, will be held later in the day, again, in small groups. Most likely, we will not be able to run the usual Pinewood Derby computer software to digitally determine winning cars, so we'll just have to do this via the "old school" method of leaders and parents watching closely and agreeing which car finished first. We will share more details soon.
