Hey, Pack 33 Fam!

Guess what time it is? Vroom! It's time for the Pinewood Derby Workshop.

See the email below from our race master, Luke Peterson! 

Location: Takoma Park Presbyterian Church Playground (7201 Maple St, Takoma Park MD)

Date Time: Saturday, February 5 during your reserved time slot from 10AM-3PM

Requirements: All COVID protocol forms must be in order with your den leader, and the scout should complete his COVID-19 checklist

Get ready to start your engines!!

Maintaining the great annual scouting tradition, the 2022 Pinewood Derby Race is on. We will hold it March 5, in the spacious Takoma Park Presbyterian Church Gymnasium. While we are still gathering the race details, scouts should be getting ready for it! Scouts are invited to pick up their car kits from their den leaders, or from Matt Rhoads’ front porch at 6614 Cockerille Ave, Takoma Park, MD!

Should scouts require help building their cars, Pack 33 will be hosting an outdoor, limited-service socially-distanced pinewood derby workshop on Saturday February 5 from 10:00 AM to 3:00PM. We need your help ensuring this workshop will be a smooth and safe experience, productive for the kids, and held in accordance with all applicable laws. 

Scouts are invited to reserve a 5-minute time slot using this SignUpGenius link, and to come prepared with a car design for the adults to help shape. Google can be very helpful with design. Households with multiple cars should reserve a slot for each car. A small crew of adult volunteers will run 2-3 saw and drill stations in the courtyard. 

The stations will be spaced appropriately and everyone will be required to wear their masks. We will make every possible effort to move through the line quickly. To avoid contact with others, scouts will be asked to stay near their cars while the sawing/drilling is performed. The playground equipment itself will be off-limits during the event. Do follow Pack 33’s COVID-19 protocols, ensuring each scout’s paperwork is in order with their den leaders, and bring a completed copy of the Pack 33 COVID-19 Pre-Screening to the event.
