Lowe’s is a huge supporter of Scouting and hosts Pinewood Derbies across the country for Cub Scouts and potential new recruits. Previous events have been well attended and very successful. In 2014, Fairfield hosted the largest Pinewood Derby event in the entire Lowe’s chain. They won company recognition, and are very excited to have us back year after year!

This event is open to all current Cub Scouts (and their buddies), and the general public including girls. A limited supply of cars will be available on site to purchase for building. Packs are encouraged to provide cars to their Cubs ahead of time so that any Cub Scout who needs help with making the car can come on the build days to get it done.

The rules for building and racing are found in the official BSA Derby Kit box.  All Wheels must be BSA approved.  Rules and online registration are at derbyreg.com

You  can find contact information and meeting places and times at BeAScout.org, and a convenient form to put you in touch with local Cub Scout leaders.
