Now I'm to the hard part. What kind of decorations did you do? I was thinking of getting some blue butcher paper and making waves to put up around the rain gutters. We are going to have a baby pool be the marina and also have a dockyard where any adjustments to the boats may be made. We will also have a few spare boats there just in case. We have a check in time and a race time and have already specified that if the kids are later than the race start time, they will not race. We gave them plenty of time to get there. I'm just tired of working so hard and my family barely getting to eat anything before Pack Meeting because we're rushing out the door to get everything set up and ready by 7pm, only to have the families show up around 7:15-7:30pm.
Did any of the Cubmasters dress up? Did you have decorations up? Is there something I might be overlooking?

Please get with me via email and lets see if we can make your next pinewood derby more enjoyable... it should not be such a bad experience.

We usually run ours in late September/early October as a kick-off even for the year.
Currently our Pack has the Raingutter then, Pinewood Derby in February, and then Space Derby in May to close out our year right before Spring Campout.
