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. Design Plans from CSB

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: January 23, 2013, 7:05pm Instructions to build your car
