NEUSE RIVER DISTRICT 
2017 PINEWOOD DERBY
           March 3rd, 2018

Derby Chairman:

Michael Harrelson -  email: pinewoodderby@neuseriverdistrict.org
Online Registration: Open until February 28 - Certificates will be ready at weigh-in for all those who are registered by Feb. 28.
Late registration will be handled at the mall on Friday night, March 2, 2018.  Certificates will be provided at the April Roundtable for late registration.
Inspection and Weigh-In: Friday night prior to race day (March 2, 2018) - from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM
Location: Triangle Town Center, Center Court (near escalators)

All entrants must bring a shoe box to store your car in overnight.

Please read all the rules regarding height, weight and construction methods.  Just because the car was "OK" in your unit race does not mean that it will pass inspection at the District level.
Race Time: 10:00 AM Saturday morning, March 3, 2018; racers not present at 10:15 AM will be removed from the heat schedules.
Awards: Will follow the last race - Usually around noon, but don't be late.  Racers must be present to win.

Divisions:

Lions* (exhibition only, with recognition)
Tigers
Cubs (Wolf & Bear Combined)
Webelos (I & II Combined)

Competitions:

Craftsmanship, Originality & Speed 
Each competition will have a 1st, 2nd & 3rd place winner for each division.
The 1st place Speed winners of each division will compete for an overall Top Speed Trophy.
Each car can only be entered in one type of competition and this will be determined by the Unit prior to registration.
  • Because the Lion program is still a pilot program, Lion participants will compete in their own Division (Lions race against other Lions), and are eligible for divisional recognition, but will not be eligible in this year for overall event recognition such as Top Speed Trophy.
  • It is required by the Derby Committee to have the Cub Scouts register their cars at the primary inspection on Friday night so that race software, judging sheets and participation certificates can be completed by the morning of the District races.

  • The Unit Cubmaster has responsibility to ensure that all racers are present and each car is registered by Friday night.

  • Complete District Derby rules are posted
