posted Apr 3, 2017, 9:36 AM by Cub Master
Since the coming weekend is Pinewood Derby weekend, there will be no Scout Meeting on Thursday April 6th. Please see updated Pinewood Derby information below.

Hoagie orders are due Thursday April 20th, pickup Wednesday April 26th between 4 and 5:30

Akelaland reminder :

HEALTH FORMS are due as soon as possible. If attending Summer camp you MUST have part C (physical) completed by your Doctor, or you will not be allowed to attend. (this includes adult volunteers) Health forms are available at Minsi Trails council website. Getting the form online is preferred since you can fill parts A and B online and print all sections A,B,C out. http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/HealthandSafety/ahmr.aspx

All Adults attending Summer camp are required to be Youth Protection Trained, as well as have PA Act 15 Clearances completed. If you do not have both you will not be able to attend.  We take the safety of our Youth VERY Seriously.


Much Help is needed for set up on Friday evening, and Race Day responsibilities. Many of the Race day responsibilities left are hopefully being filled by Boy Scouts, however there are still supplies needed and I have outlined those below. If we don't get the other two casseroles, we will just sell what we have. We do need chips (individual single serve bags)

Also, those volunteers that are shown as floaters may need to fill in if we don't get enough Boy Scout participation.

General information:

Remember initial weigh in and inspection is Friday night. You will need to weigh in on Friday, and on Race Day Saturday. Also, you may not test this year's car on the track at any time before the race. 

PLEASE remember to graphite the axles before the car is being placed in PIT Row. Once the car is through Inspection on Saturday and placed on PIT Row, the cars cannot be lubricated with Graphite, or worked on in any way. 

Please note that check in and registration ends at 9:45 am on Race day.

We will be following North Valley District Pinewood Derby rules as announced weekly, and handed out at Den Meetings. The rules must be followed or the car will be disqualified and ineligible for Trophies and the District Race. The rules are also available by following this link:  


Food will be available for purchase on Saturday, breakfast items as well as lunch items. 

Each Scout will receive a pass for a free main dish item, one side, and one drink.
