Pinewood derby

The Open Door Pinewood Derby is a racing event where contestants build their own cars from a block of pine, plastic wheels, and metal axles and compete against other racers.

Car kits will be available on Sundays and Wednesdays in April and can be purchased for $5 (or by reciting 5 memory verses of your choice).

Trophies will be awarded for speed and design in the following categories:

Beginner (Pre-K & under)

K-1st Grader

2nd-3rd Grader

4th-5th Grader

Open (for teens and adults who want to race a car)

A Free Dinner will also be served during the Awards Ceremony.

If you need help on your cars we have planned Derby “Pit Parties” at 6:00 pm on Wednesday nights April 18th, 25th, & May 2nd to work on the cars as a group.

We are also in need of volunteers to help out with “Pit Parties” and race day events (woodworking skills and tools would be a blessing!).
