The weigh-in for the 2011 Pinewood Derby has been rescheduled from Friday to Thursday, January 19th. We’re also changing the time and schedule a bit to accommodate for the fact that we understand that this might pose an issue for some people, and adding an alternative weigh-in period on Saturday.
To make things smoother, we’re going to stagger the weigh-in times for the Dens. The schedule for Thursday night is as follows:
- Tigers: 7:15pm
- Wolves: 7:35pm
- Bears: 7:55pm
- Webelos: 8:15pm
In addition to the weigh-in night change, the venue for the Pinewood Derby itself has been changed to St. James Parish in South Grafton. The main event will still be occurring from 12:30-3:30pm.
To accommodate people who can’t make it to Thursday night’s weigh-in, there will be an alternate weigh-in on Saturday morning from 9-10am, held at St. James Church. We’d like to request that, if at all possible, you use the Thursday night weigh-in.
Also, as requested previously, please have your boys wear their full uniforms for whichever weigh-in event you attend.
One thing that we hadn’t mentioned prior to now is that a local Girl Scout Troop will be selling cookies at the Pinewood Derby. They will be the only refreshments available at the event.
