“CUT THE CAR” night for the Pinewood Derby is Thursday, March 10 from 6:30-7:30pm at Manatee Bay Elementary. This is the last chance
to get your Scout’s wood block cut into the rough shape that he wants.
If you have not received your Pinewood Derby car kit yet we will have them at the school. We will also have extra cars available for $5 each.
We want this to be fun for the Scouts and the best way to make it fun is to let the Scout do the work himself. Win or lose every Scout will be rewarded at the Pinewood Derby for his efforts.
