POSTPONED – Virtual Mawat District Pinewood Derby

February 6 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Pinewood Derby

Due to state and county regulations related to COVID-19, this event must be rescheduled.

2020 – 2021 Virtual Mawat District Pinewood Derby

Unique for this year, the Mawat District Pinewood Derby will be a “virtual” event and live streamed for all participants and their families. Unfortunately due to expected occupancy restrictions, racers and spectators will not be permitted at the event. Instead race officials will place cars at the starting gate. Car judging will be very similar to years past.

General Information

Date: Saturday, February 6, 2020

Location: Westminster Presbyterian Church; 3639 Old Chapel Hill Rd, Durham, NC 27707

Broadcast Link: (Pending)

Times:

  • Registration: Runs from 9:00 am to 10:00 am
  • Lions & Tigers: Racing starts at 10:30 am. Awards will follow the race.
  • Wolves, Bears and Webelos: Racing directly follows Lions & Tigers. Awards will follow
    the race
  • Family Racers: Family races for “Fastest Car” will begin once all scout races are
    complete

Car Drop-Off and Registration Process: Scouts will present their cars at the Derby location
beginning at 9:00 AM before the race. All cars must meet all construction criteria regardless of
competing in speed race or visual judging. Scouts will also need to turn in Registration Form
signed by scout, adult helper, and Cubmaster as well as the Racer Info Form. Patches will be
presented at Registration. We also ask that all Scouts wear their uniform to take a photo for
recognizing winners on broadcast.

Car Racing Process: Unfortunately scouts will not be able to race their cars in person this
year. Instead race officials will place the cars at the starting gate. Race officials will do their
best to place all cars consistently the same way every time, with cars aimed straight down the
track and not touching the center guide rail.

Car Judging Process (for Most Original and Most Beautiful): Similar to years past, cars
judged on visual appearance will be placed together on showcase tables and reviewed by
impartial race officials.

Race Day Show Broadcast: The broadcast program is still being developed, but intent will be
to show all heats from all three race series. For each heat, the video will switch between the
race computer, starting gate camera, and finish line camera. Broadcast will also attempt to
show all visually-judged cars as well. During awards presentations, winners will be announced
and a photo of the Scout shown if available.

Returning Cars and Trophies: Cars will be returned to owners and trophies presented to
winners between 1:00 and 2:30 pm and 4:00 and 5:00 pm. Cars/trophies can be released to
Cubmasters or Assistant Cubmasters with prior notice during registration.
