We have earmarked the next Pinewood Derby for 23rd Feb 2019. I hope that this event continues to appeal to your scouts, last year had the most participants ever!

The kits have to come from the USA and takes 6 weeks to come. In order to have stock in before Xmas (so you can have them at the start of the new year) I would like a rough idea of the number you require BEFORE the end of October as I will be placing one order only for them.

Please have a word with your scouts and then email me with an approx number jlarks@btinternet.com – the kits unfortunately will probably be £6 this year unless anyone knows of a sponsor for the prizes. I won’t know the cost for sure until they arrive as exchange rates and import duty effect this.

This event is popular as it is an ideal event to do in the winter months, gets parents involved (possible recruiting exercise) as they can assist in the main shaping of the car, scouts also can gain their model maker badge as it fits one of the requirements.

Woggles Up!

John
