Volunteers
This event can not take place without parent volunteers. We need volunteers to help setup the event, run the event and clean up after. Each scouting family should plan to volunteer for a slot. Volunteers will still be able to watch their kids race.
We will have an open class again this year for other adults or family to race in.
Volunteer signup by March 14th:

Building of cars
The pack purchased a bandsaw and sander last year. Last year we just passed it around to the different dens as needed. Currently Brian Littman has it. So, contact him to get it. We are going to use the northern star council rules this year. They can be found at the link below. The cars cannot have any weapons, sharps, or ammo shells. If you bring a car with anything like this the car will not be allowed to race.
During race
If a crashed car touches another car, re-race. If a crashed car does not touch another car, that car is in 4th place for the race. This assumes other cars are racing fine and track does not need adjustment. If needed, we will rerun the race.
Each den will race against their fellow members. We will start with the lion’s den and work our way up.

New this year we will have a division for the den leaders and other leaders of our pack.
