Race Day!

I hope all the scouts are working hard on thir derby cars! I know if will be a fun race day for them on Sunday.  Just a few reminders to all regarding race day:


1)  Race Day - Sunday, March 24th, Magnolia Woods Pool Club House (same place as Blue & Gold), 12pm-3pm


2)  Weigh in begins at 12pm and will close at 1pm sharp - All cars must be weighed in during this time and are not allowed to be touched by the racer after weigh in.  Any car arriving after the close of weigh in will be automatically disqualified for rank placement and district competition, but will be allowed to race his car in the sibling/dad races after the other races are complete.  Remember to bring any tools that may be necessary to adjust weight if necessary.  1st and 2nd place winner for each rank will qualify for district races.


3)  Ultimate Race - Any car that may be disqualified due to not following the rules given out with the car kit, or any participant that chooses to compete in this category, will race prior to the start of the official races.  This will allow us to have a few "test runs" prior to the offical start of the competition.  We have added this category to insure every boy is able to race his car that he worked hard on, even if not for a trophy (there will be a certificate I believe for this categpoy).  Those cars will not be eligible for rank awards or distric qualifications.
