This Saturday, February 23rd is the Ft. Clatsop District Pinewood Derby.
***New Location in a brand new building*** This years derby will be held at the Warrenton KOA in their brand new activities building. When you enter the property, turn left at the pool and go all the way to the end of the road, then turn right and you are there. Watch for the Blue and Gold Balloons.

As a reminder, both 4 lane tracks have computerized timers. Each car will race once in each lane and those 4 times will be averaged. In larger rank/categories with more than 4 cars, your scouts car may not actually be on the track at the same time with every car. The standings are determined by the “fastest average time for each cars 4 heats”.
Trophies will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for each rank/category. All 1st place winners will be held over to race for District 1st, 2nd and 3rd place trophies in both Stock and Modified categories.
