Annual "Chip Patten" Pinewood Derby Workshop for Cub Scouts

This fun activity helps Cub Scouts and their parents who need assistance building a Pinewood Derby car.  Bring your own car kit purchased from our Marin Council Trading Post stock, and already have a design in mind.  Council adult volunteers and OA Talako Lodge Arrowmen will be onsite to assist with directing traffic, managing check-in and working with power tools and other equipment to help you rough out the shape.  Additional stations will help with sanding the shape, weighing and accessories available from the trading post.  In addition weather-dependent, a snack shack and hotdog lunch booth may be availalble, and some shooting sports activities such as BB-gun and Slingshot may be offered by our Council Shooting Sports volunteers with range-time sign-ups available at the check-in booth.

Due to the popularity of this annual Marin Council event and the necessities of our Iron Springs Road landslide repairs, for your convenience we have moved this year from the Camp Tamarancho woodshop to the upper parking lot behind the Elks Lodge @ 1312 Mission Ave in San Rafael.  Parking will be tight so please make sure to adhere  Thanks for your support to ensure we have a smooth day at Pit Row!


The cost is $8 per Cub Scout, which covers up to an hour of build time on Pit Row including one 20-minute session in the design and workshop area plus a cool PWD Pit Crew patch!  You must bring your own Pinewood Derby Car kit pre-purchased from Marin Council Trading Post.
