    Pinewood Derby Committee Meeting

    Posted on Jan 12 2023 - 12:28pm

    Topic: Pinewood Derby Committee
    Time: Jan 25, 2023 08:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
    Join Zoom Meeting
    https://us06web.zoom.us/j/82363407872

    Pinewood Derby is one of the most fun and exciting events of the scouting program. Please consider joining if you think you can contribute to any of these needs:

    • Workshop event – we need to organize a date/location to offer a workshop for the scouts. We will need parents with tools and skills to help scouts execute their ideas.
    • Computer software operation – we need a couple people proficient on how to load data into the software and conduct the races. This will require us to practice using the software ahead of time
    • Track setup / Testing – if you have any prior experience setting up the track we would really appreciate your help
    • Activities – things to keep the kids busy when they aren’t racing. Last year we did driver license photos, which the kids loved. Any other ideas are welcomed
    • Food – we either need someone to coordinate the ordering of food from a vendor, or possibly leading a team to cook hamburgers/dogs at the event.
    • DJ/MC for the event – we have to check with Randy, but the person we used in the past may not be available. It will be nice to have music in between races
    • Check in station volunteers – we need 3-4 people to help inspect/weigh the cars and organize the check in line
