Pinewood Derby 2019

Pinewood Derby: Off The Tracks

We live for making up new things and we’re definitely not meant to stay on the straight and narrow path. At least, our car designs aren’t.

Welcome to CSCA’s Pinewood Derby, the annual fundraiser for our student scholarship fund. Imagine little wooden cars customized by creatives careening down a track provided by us. And as always, there is free beer with entry.

Anyone can make a car! Young or old, member or not, teams, individuals, girl scouts, etc. You only have two constraints: size and weight. Well, maybe 3. Don’t be offensive, kk? This is a family-friendly event. It’s only $30 and includes your kit and t-shirt.
