• Pinewood Derby Time!

    Posted Mar 10th, 2011 By in Cadets Blog With | 2 Comments

    We’ve all worked really hard, and the time to enjoy the fruits of our labor has arrived — racing season is finally here! Some important dates and times to note:

    • Sun 3/13, fellowship time: I will open the cadet workroom in case anybody wants to get a little last work done on their cars.
    • Tue 3/15, 5-8pm: We will be setting up the track, so anybody is invited to join us to help set up the track, take some test runs, finish/tune their cars, etc.
    • Wed 3/16, 7:15pm SHARP we begin the official NLPCA club races for trophies. Of all the cadet meetings of the year, this is the one to make an extra effort to get to Cadets early, to make any last-minute tweaks, add graphite, adjust wheel tightness, trim weight, etc. We will be there definitely by 6:30, and we’ll try to open official weigh-ins at 7:00.
    • Wed 3/23, fun racing with Craig Doty’s club from Bayview OPC. We will try again to start by 7:15, but with friends coming from Chula Vista (and no trophies on the line), it might be tough. This will be the last chance to tweak cars before…
    • Sat 3/26, 12-4: SoCal Council Pinewood Derby!! For the first time in memory (ever?) the SoCal Council Pinewood Derby is being hosted in San Diego (at NLPCA). Car registration opens at noon, racing begins probably at 1. We’ll have a snack bar, an inflatable obstacle course (outside), a spare track for grudge matches, a video feed of the track projected up on the wall, and OVER 100 MANIC CADETS competing for speed, turkey, and craftsmanship trophies, in four age groups.

    Some come on out and support the cadets, invite family and friends, it’s gonna be a blast!
