Cub-Anapolis ~ Great Salt Lake - Cub Scout Themes - PowWow Books - Pack Meeting Plans


This information for holding a Pinewood Derby was in the 2006 Utah Great Salt Lake Council PowWow book.  This is a great idea, and many of the things that were used back then can still be used today.

CUB-ANAPOLIS
Description: A fun, easy to organize activity in which boys make individual cars out of cardboard boxes and then race around the track making required pit stops with their families serving as the pit crew.
Car: Each boy makes his own car from a large cardboard box. They can be as simple or as fancy as they would like. Some packs even have each boy bring their own box to pack meeting and work on them there. They can have plastic wrap windshields, paper plate tires, paper plate steering wheels, etc. Let the boys have fun and use their imagination.
Race:
  • This race can be held indoors or outdoors depending on the weather and the time of year that you are holding this event.
  • The boys race, wearing their race car, a designated number of times around the course while making pit stops as required.
  • Some suggested pit stops:
    •  Refuel – Eat a cookie or cracker and drink some punch through a straw
    •  Change tires – Boys take off their shoes and socks and then put the socks on wrong side out and
      put their shoes on again
    •  Windshield wash – The boys’ families spray their goggles or sunglasses and then wipe them off
    •  Rotate the tires – Spin around four times
    •  Change the oil – Drink a glass of chocolate milk
    •  Check the brakes – put up a flag and each boy must stop immediately to see how well their
      “brakes” work
      Other Suggestions:
    1. 1)  Have the boys decorate their cars using a specific theme.
    2. 2)  Have obstacles along the track
      1. a)  Falling rocks – Plastic bags filled with wadded newspaper
      2. b)  Water hazard – Large squirt guns or wading pools they need to run through
      3. c)  Ice – long strip of plastic that is wet making it hard to run on
