Pinewood Derby
Pinewood derby car kits were distributed at the November pack meeting.  One kit is provided free to each scout.  Additional kits will be available for purchase at den meetings through December 13.  Parents and siblings are encouraged to make a car to race in the open class at our pack’s pinewood derby in January.

Pack 565 will be having a pinewood derby car building clinic on Saturday, December 17, at Kevin Dolezal's garage.  Arrive anytime between 10 and 3.  Specialized tools will be available for your use, and expert help will be on-hand to help you build your car.
Cars must be constructed to conform to rules that are listed in the document that is attached below.

Our pack’s pinewood derby race will be held at Lord of Love Church, 10405 Fort Street, on Saturday, January 21, 2012.  Registration starts at 8:00.  Races start at 9:00.  The event will be finished by 1:00 or 2:00.  Lunch will be available for purchase at the event.

Members of Pack 565 will also be very involved in the Mid-America Pinewood Derby on April 28, 2012.  Please plan to enter your car in that race, and also volunteer to help staff that event.  This is an important fund raiser for our pack.
