Annual Pinewood Derby Workshop for Cub Scouts
Saturday February 12
Time" specific time slot available when you sign up
Cost: $5 per person
RSVP required via Marin Council BSA
This fun activity helps Cub Scouts and their parents who need assistance building a Pinewood Derby car. Bring your own car kit (available from the Marin Council Trading Post), and already have a design in mind. Council adult volunteers and OA Talako Lodge Arrowmen will be socially-distanced onsite to assist with directing traffic, managing check-in and working with power tools and other equipment to help you rough out the shape.
Due to the popularity of this annual Pinewood Derby Workshop event, we have returned to our traditional Camp Tamarancho woodshop location. That Saturday, February 13, please wear a facemask the entire time you at the woodshop or shooting sports ranges. Thanks for your support!
The pack got to explore the life of bugs at the last pack meeting, courtesy of the INSECT DISCOVERY LAB. Scouts got to see and hold beetles, millipedes, tarantulas, walking sticks, whip scorpions and more!
A wide range of donors at every level is what has sustained the Marin Council so far, and what is necessary for us to continue to provide exceptional Scouting in our community. We depend on donations to improve and maintain our camps as well as help subsidize our camp fees so camp is affordable for all families, including camperships when necessary. Donations also underwrite administrative costs ranging from insurance to utilities, drinking water testing and safety, and governmental permitting. And donations help fund a capable staff, ensuring our Marin Council families are supported in a safe program. Every dollar donated touches a component of what it takes to operate our Council and every donation stays local, supporting our Scouts right here in Marin.
We hope that every Scouting family would become a Friend of Scouting through their donation. To make your contribution today . . . click here!
