2013 - 2014 District Pinewood Derby rule update

Posted on Nov 14 2013 - 8:56pm

Pinewood Derby time is fast approaching and there has been an update to the District rules.  See the attachment. Additionally, the date for the Button Gwinnett District Pinewood Derby is Saturday, March 15.  The location and times will be announced at a later date.  So, for now, save the date of March 15 for the District Derby. 

Lubrication (Important new revision)

· New this year!!! Only dry powdered lubricant may be used for lubricating the wheels.  Accepted lubricants are: graphite (dark powder) and powdered Teflon® (white lubricant).  Excess lubricants are to be wiped from the wheels to avoid contamination of the race track.  (See "inspection and registration" for additional information.)

· Do not use any oils, grease, liquid, or spray lubricants of any kind.
