The Pinewood Derby is held at the LMES Cafeteria. The dates for this year's Pinewood Derby are: 

Inspection and Weigh-In:  Thursday evening January 16th, 2018 7:00PM.  Tools will be available to make minor modifications to the cars but plan to be ready for inspection when you get there. 

Track Set Up: Friday evening January 17th, 2019 from 7-9:00 PM (We can always use help with setup)

The Races:  Saturday morning January 18th at 11:00AM and run until around 3:00PM. 

The purpose of the Cub Scout Pinewood Derby is for the Cub Scouts to develop skills such as teamwork, creativity, sportsmanship, responsibility, and to understand the core morals of fair play.  This is a fun Scouting event that has been exclusive to Scouting for over 50 years.  We are proud to honor, and keep alive, this very special tradition.


All Cub Scouts are expected to be in their Class-A uniform on Race Day and it is expected that everyone (adults included) conduct themselves in a Scout-like fashion. While the excitement of the race may only last the day, the entire experience will create memories for a lifetime.


The LMES Pack 15 Pinewood Derby is an Official Pack Event and each Den's 1st Place Winner will go on to race in the Official Mad River District Pinewood Derby Finals Event.
