Girls at Pinewood Derby: The new face of Boy Scouting
I used to love building those cars. Got quite good at it. My cars would always place first or second. Most times it wasn’t even close.
My granddaughter, who is nine, built her first pinewood derby car it was blue and she almost beat her brother.
Scouting has been dead ever since the approved fags to be scout leaders. The girls should’ve never been allowed to join.
I guess this means the we won’t have to talk about women drivers anymore, because they will be getting educated about cars earlier in life.
Hey now! I'm sure that a girl's dad can build a pinewood derby car every bit as good as a boy's dad can.
Mine was double wedge shaped in general but I grinder to fillet all the edges and corners, particularly the leading edge so it was more like a bubble car. Painted it like a tiger but the yellows were significantly dulled by the graphite coating we put on it before the race. That was my father’s idea. People were using graphite in the wheel pegs but he felt it would also reduce surface airflow friction. Took first
The award for fastest car among the fifth grade Arrow of Light dens went to Brenna Johnson, with her purple car named “The Rhinestone Unicorn.”
The headline makes absolutely no sense. What are Girls doing in the Boy Scouts? There is a program for Girls, and as one might imagine it’s called the Girl Scouts.
The secret?? Weight in the nose, and powdered graphite on the Axles. Never came in less than 2nd.
Assimilation into the Globohomo hive is complete.
You can make them look as good as you want, what matters is all the weights go in the nose, and powdered graphite in the Axles.
way to go!
When my son “ages out” of Cub Scouts at the end of this spring we are done with Scouts in general.
Cub Scouts is too long (5 years) is simply too long and my son has lost interest moved on. He’s still in it because I am den leader and was Cub Master until this year
Girls ( Scouts) have been particpating in this for years by invitation
God forbid girls should get to build and test a pinewood car...taking away the manhood of the Cub Scouts
Mrs WBill ran a pink car in the Outlaw class one year. It was "Street Legal", meaning that it abided by all of the Pinewood Derby rules.
Her times smoked everyone. Proving my theory that it's not so much the weight, or the aerodynamics, but the wheels and hubs....I may or may not have had a little input into the design. :-) It was fun to watch some of the guys get their egos popped.
Hemi's are illegal, surprised you were never busted......
Actually the reverse. Weight in the tail.... as far back as you can get it. Wheels as far apart front to back as possible. Wedge shape.
Turn the axles with a file and drill. Ream the wheel holes and coat with graphite. Run the wheels in on an a specific axle for 5 minutes while adding more graphite.
Pack Winner and District winner for 3 consecutive years
“Scouting has been dead ever since the approved fags to be scout leaders. “
But before that a number of them, including one who was our son’s scoutmaster were sexual predators and deviates. And that was 20 years ago.
