3R District Pinewood Derby Races
Where: Best Buy Court, Northtown Mall, Blaine
When: Saturday, March 24th, 2018
Who: 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place Scouts in all ranks for every Three Rivers District Cub Scout Pack*
· Each pack is encouraged to send the top 3 racers from each rank. The Pack may send up to 2 additional top racers per rank, if they choose. If the top racers are not available to race, it is highly recommended that the available spots be filled with the runner-ups. If a rank has more than the top 5 Scouts who want to attend, then those Scouts may race in the open class race.
· Each qualifying participant must be registered as a Cub Scout with Northern Star Council within the Three Rivers District on March 5th, 2018.
· This year there will be an Open Class Race for boys and girls in Grades K-5 registered or not with the Council. Cost is $10 per racer. NSC rules apply to all cars in this race.
Registration will be online and can be found on the District’s Home Page under “3R District PWD Races” News Feed of the Three Rivers website. http://threerivers.nsbsa.org. Packs should register as a unit, and no one should register individually, Cost is $10.00 per racer. Online registration will close on Tuesday, March 20th, 2018 at 11:45pm. Late registrations will only be accepted at the Friday evening check-in with a $10.00 per racer fee.
Car numbers will be assigned after cars pass inspection by the Three Rivers District Pinewood Derby Staff. The team has the final say as to if a car passes inspection, adhering to the Northern Star Council 2018 Pinewood Derby Rules. It is preferred that all cars be checked in on Friday evening so that we can adhere to the race times set out for the day. Any car that is not checked in on Friday evening must be checked in an hour prior to their rank’s race time or they will not be allowed to race. Race times may run late but will not start before the posted times. E-Mail Kevin Conelly with any questions about the Pinewood Derby at firstname.lastname@example.org
