Pinewood Derby Rules

Posted on Nov 20 2022 - 4:20pm

 

Please see attached for the full list of pinewood derby rules that our pack follows*. 

The 3 Key rules that must be followed:

1) All cars must be less then or equal to 5oz.

2) All cars must meet length, width, height requirements.  Pay close attention bottom clearance of 3/8in where we run into issues each year. 

3) BSA axles, BSA wheels, and BSA body wood from the BSA kit must be used to be eligible for scout trophies.   If there were any substitutions, please inform the check in person and you/your scout can still race in the "open/adult" division but just not be eligible for trophies.  We give 1st-3rd place metals in the open/adult division instead of trophies.     

*Please note -  Over the years people have submitted part modifications and since we do not want to turn anyone away we have allowed them to still race in the open/adult division as long as they meet weight and dimension requirements.  

Pinewood Derby Rules are at the following link:

Scouting Fees are Now DUE for the 2023 Scouting Year

Posted on Nov 13 2022 - 4:29pm

Dear Parents and Scouts,

The 2023 Scouting fee of $150 (Cash/Check) / $155 (Credit Card/Paypal) is now due for next year's scouting. The recharter for the Pack to BSA is due in December so we would like payment to the pack by the 11/15 Pack Meeting to allow time for paperwork to be completed. 

Many scouts earned their way partially or completely in 2022 from popcorn sales. This is a great way to support the district, the council and the pack. Attached please find the list of dues per scout after deduction of Earn your way in scouting .   The recharter form which should be filled out, especially if your address or other contact information has changed. Only one form per family please.

Payment is preferred at the pack meeting with the following methods:

1) Cash or Check (payable to "Pack 1999").  Drop off at pack meeting or drop off at 1014 Pinsonfork Drive, Spring, TX

2) PayPal paypal@pack1999.org 

3) Credit Card:  https://square.link/u/liZnZGoy

If you have any question please do not hesitate to send them to chairman@pack1999.org or cubmaster@pack1999.org

Thank you!

Pack 1999 Leadership

 
Discounted Dues for 2023 are listed below for scouts that sold popcorn last year.  All other scout Dues are $150/year for cash/check or $155 for Credit Card/Paypal payments.
 
 
 
 
 
$150 Per Year Broken Down as Follows:
1) National Registration Fee ($81)
100% goes to the BSA national organization
 
 
​2) Scout Life Magazine ($15)
One per family
 
3) Pack 1999 Year Dues ($54)
Raingutter Regatta
Pinewood Derby
Advancements/Awards
Blue and Gold Banquet
Pushmobile
Material and supplies
Leader Registration​
Activities and Outings

 

One of the common questions that we get from the parents of new scouts is that why are they registering again as they just paid to sign their kids up in August. The payment collected in August/September was prorated for those 4 months and the bulk of it ($25) was the new scout registration fees. The $150 fees will go towards everything planned in 2023 (calendar year not school year) and the advancement awards.
