Pinewood action returns to Boca!  Plans are coming together for the 2017 Everglades District Derby.  This year the Derby will be held at St. Paul Lutheran Church and School   on Palmetto Park Road in east Boca.  There is sure to be fun for all!

The address to St. Paul’s is: 701 West Palmetto Park Road, Boca Raton Florida. It is conveniently located about 1 mile east of I-95 on north side of Palmetto Park Road.  The Family Life Center can be found by driving around to the rear of the building on the north side.  Ample parking is located there.

Please register your Pack’s Winners (total of 12 scouts- (3) from each rank) by emailing the names and ranks of those who are able to compete in our District Race.  Email directly to Susie Metzler at smetzleregdistrict@gmail.com.

Do this as soon as your Unit race results are final and you have confirmed that your racers can attend.

You will also need to register 3 volunteers from your unit to help run the race.  Ask parents you think might enjoy this opportunity and be the right person for the job.  You might consider parents whose scouts are not racing.

The car construction rules and racing guidelines for this year’s race are on the Council Website.  https://www.gulfstreamcouncil.org/files/6474/Pine-Wood-Derby-Rules.  Please be sure that your scouts follow the rules to insure they will not be disqualified at the district or council races.  If you have any questions regarding the rules or anything else, e-mail me.
