Pine Car Derby

Event details

  • Saturday | July 20, 2024
  • All Day

This year’s pinewood derby race will be held on Saturday, March 14, 2015. Car weigh-in will begin at 9:15am and the race will start promptly at 10:00am. Car kits will be provided to clubbers at no cost. In order to receive your car kit, parents will need to complete a registration form. They are available at the Children’s Welcome center. In order to plan for this fun-filled event, the deadline for registration is Sunday, February 22nd.
To keep the race fair, you must build a car for this event (reusing cars from other program races is not permitted). Only kits handed out through the Five Forks Awana club will be permitted to race and only those materials provided in the kit can be used. Do not buy your own car kit or parts (i.e., axles and wheels) as they all can be different. Cars must be built to the “car specifications” and “rules” provided in the kit. There will be trophies awarded for speed and “best of show.”
We will have practice runs and test weigh-ins during your clubber’s Game Time on March 4th and 11th. Feel free to join the clubbers during this time to make modifications to their cars.
