The Monterey Corporate Pinewood Derby Challenge to benefit the Boy Scouts of Monterey County – This Saturday, April 9th, 2022 beginning at 8:00am at the Chrysler Dodge Jeep Jam, 3 Geary Plaza in Seaside

You are invited to participate in a unique opportunity to show your support for youth development programs through Scouts, BSA, and have great fun doing it: the Monterey County, Santa Lucia District, Corporate Pinewood Derby Challenge This Saturday, April 9th starting at 8:00am.

If you’ve had a child or grandchild in Cub Scouts, you probably know about Pinewood Derby. For those who have never had the pleasure, Pinewood Derby is the way Scouting teaches a young Cub Scout to use imagination while following rules; embrace competition while respecting their competitors; and take advantage of the experience that can be shared by older Scouts and even Scout leaders.

A Cub Scout is given a block of pinewood and a simple wheel kit out of which they carve and craft a speed racer. Pinewood Derby racers are not motorized - they free-fall down an inclined track to acheive speed. Unless you’ve done it yourself, building the car and racing are more fun than you can imagine.

So what is the Corporate Pinewood Derby Challenge?

It’s the same block of wood, the same competitive race, only this time adults are building the racers while inspiring hundreds of Scouts, who will watch as Spectators. Adult imaginations will run wild as they figure out how to edge the competition with ingenuity and imagination.

Awards will be given to the finalist in speed and design categories.

Won’t you join us this year? Every penny of your donation stays in our local area helping local youth, whose programs recieve no government subsidies and depend entirely on local fundraising.
