We are excited for our Pinewood Derby on Saturday March 9!  This event is open to racers of all ages including the Girl's Ministries. It’s always a fun day! There is no cost to race, and we have car kits available Wednesday evenings beginning February 21 through March 6 (and you are free to bring your own car/weights – you do not have to buy them from us (we are selling them below cost - $7 for the car kit and $3 for the weights). You can race a car you’ve previously made – you do not have to make a new car.

We will work on the cars during regular family night activities from 7:15pm - 8:30pm in the gym on the following Wednesday nights – February 21, February 28 and March 6. You can also work on the cars on Saturday March 9 before the race (although you cannot cut the cars that day). We have all of the tools needed to design, cut and assemble the cars - you only need to bring your car kit/weights (and you can buy a car kit/weights any of those nights). The Royal Ranger leaders can help design your car (if you want) and only the Royal Ranger leaders will cut the cars for safety reasons. Note –weights are optional though they do make the car go faster. A car can weigh no more than 5 oz total including weights. While you are free to paint your car at home, we will NOT be painting cars at the church. However, we will have stickers (free of charge) that you can use to decorate your car. *Anyone working on cars at JCC will need to have signed "Participant Waivers" to work with the tools.

Registration is from 9am to 10:30am on Saturday and Racing is from 10:30am to Noon.  We maybe ending earlier depending on how many cars there are to race.

*If racers are attending without their custodial guardian (for example with another family) they will need a Parent Consent Form for the event.

This is such a great family event.  We hope you can join us!
