 Pinewood Derby Race

February 17, 2024 @ 1:00 PM

Open to all ages

It’s that time of year once again when nice warm indoor activities are welcome. The Greater Hansville Community Center is a great place to stay warm and dry while having a little fun. The annual Pinewood derby and workshop are perfect winter diversions if you’re looking for an exciting hands on project that is sure to put a smile on your face. At the workshop (2-10-2024 @ 10:00 AM) we help PWD racers get their cars ready for the race. We have car kits for just $6.00 and help with shaping, painting, and assembly of your race car project.  It’s so much fun to see the variety of imagination people put into these creations.

Then there’s race day (2-17-2024 @ 1:00 PM) where we will be using our new whizz bang Pinewood Derby track computerized digital timer that ensures accurate race results. The track is made of extruded aluminum is really fast. If you’re not interested in being a racer you’re welcome to be a spectator and just come watch. It’s a hoot to watch how excited the racers get when their car creations blast down the track using nothing but gravity. That’s right, all ages are welcome and we have multiple classes that keep racers racing against racers of their same age group. Then there’s the BLING class that has a few special rules that allow spectacular decoration of those racers.
