Here are the key dates and details.

Car Cut Clinic: Sunday, January 7th, 2018, Veterans Memorial Hall, 9am-1pm

-Adults staffing the power tools will cut your scout's car according to his design.
-If you've already made the initial cuts, bring the car to work on finishing touches and get tips from the pros.

Impound: Saturday, January 20th, Veterans Memorial Hall, 5-8pm

-Cars will be registered and inspected to ensure they comply with race rules (attached to this message).
-Once cars have passed inspection, they will be securely stored at the Hall overnight so they are ready to race the next morning.
-Have your scout think up a perfect name for his car in advance, so he?s not put on the spot when it?s time to register.

The Derby: Sunday, January 21st, Veterans Memorial Hall, 9am until about 1pm

-We will start racing very close to 9am, so don't be late.
-Scouts will get tickets for food and snacks.  Additional tickets for family and friends will be available for purchase.

It?s not just about speed.  In addition to trophies for the three fastest cars in the pack and the fastest car in each den, awards will be given out by our panel of judges for the following categories:

Best Tasting
The Silliest
Most Creative
