Pinewood Derby Day at Steve’s Auto Repair and Tire
Steve’s Auto Repair and Tire in Woodbridge Virginia will open their doors to all Boy Scouts and Cub Scout units in the Woodbridge, Dale City, Dumfries, Lake Ridge, and Manassas Areas for Pinewood Derby Car Building Day.
For units that want space to build their derby cars or to use some professional tools, Steve’s Auto Repair & Tire is willing to work with Scouts to coordinate weekend derby car building events in Woodbridge.
Packs are able to use special tools provided by Steve’s Auto Repair and Tire and can work with their families to build the cars. Scouts also ge the chance to build or repair their cars in a real-life automotive garage setting, which adds to fun.
By using the space, Scout leaders are also able to practice setting up the race track to make sure it works correctly, without having to pay for extra time at the Prince William school where the derby is held. This helps to make sure there were no glitches on race day.
“We’ve done this before and it was fun for the Cub Scouts, parents, and us. We enjoy doing it for the community and that is why we are expanding the days for the Scouts, to make sure they’re prepared for the Pinewood Derby,” said ST Billingsley owner of Steve’s Auto Repair and Tire.
Overall it is a great event with lots of fun and hard work for the Scouts. To coordinate a date for units to come to Steve’s for car building, call 703-670-8005.
While there are many ways to build a car for the Pinewood Derby, there are standard rules all Scouts must follow – either set by NCAC‘s Boy Scout District Director or the individual units.
