Official 2018 World Championship Rules

The 2018 World Championship Pinewood Derby Attendee Guide (FAQ) is now available at www.bsa-gnyc.org/championshippinewood. Please review this guide completely as there have been some updates and changes since last year. We have gotten a lot of questions regarding Lions for this year’s race. As the Attendee Guide states, because Lions was still in its pilot phase for the 2017-2018 program year, they are not included in this year’s competition. This fall, Lions will become an official part of the Cub Scout program and so, will be able to compete next year with the same rules and guidelines as other Cub Scouts.
