Shape N Race Derbies are so much fun on so many levels.  The first step to take after receiving your block of pine wood, is to plan out what the car will look like.  Are you designing for speed, or desire to win Best Design?  Once you settle on a design, building your pinewood car with your Dad (or uncle, brother, grandpa, etc.) can be one of the most fun and rewarding part of the Shape N Race Derby. 
The designs for your car are limitless, but here are some to get you started in planning.

Each year either during a Stockade meeting, or on a Saturday morning, the Chief Ranger will bring tools so each Dad and Son team can cut out their pinewood block, and begin to shape the block of wood into a car!  Much sanding is usually involved also, as the more the boy sands his car, the smoother it will be for the shiny new coat of paint!  The next Shape N Race workshop will be held on:
