It's the 100th anniversary of the Indy 500 and a new tradition is starting on the Windward side - the Windy 500. Participants build a car from a pinewood derby kit and will have the opportunity to race for the win on Saturday, May 21, from 1pm-3pm at Windward Ford. Funds received will benefit the Aloha Council Boy Scouts of America
Look for the Comspec sponsored cars and see how they will finish! Let's race!

"The pinewood derby is one of the most popular and successful family activities in Cub Scouting. Pinewood derby cars are small wooden models that Cub Scouts make with help from their families. Then they race the cars in competition. The cars are powered by gravity and run down a track. Most packs have a pinewood derby every year. It can be run indoors or outdoors. Every boy can design and build his own "grand prix" car to enter in the race." http://www.alohacouncilbsa.org/unit-fundraising/makahiki/pinewood-derby/52128
