Excellent Pinewood Derby Youtube Series

Post by Vitamin K » Thu Jan 25, 2018 6:16 pm

Hey guys, if you are looking to help parents in your Pack with building cars with their kids, you're going to like this video series.

"Mr. B" over at another forum turned me on to these. There's seven videos total, and each one is about 5 minutes long. They're clear, concise, brief and helpful. Most of the information presented is spot-on. I may do a few things differently personally, but the stuff shown here makes a great starting point for anybody just getting into the Pinewood Derby! I definitely plan to send these out to parents in my son's pack.

The inline videos are not playing for me. If that happens to anyone else, you can go directly to the YouTube channel:

I have heard from many of our parents that they struggled with knowing how and what to do, or thought that they needed to purchase a ton of expensive tools. I guess great minds think alike because I shot a video series this year to share with our pack parents too! I'll likely add to it as years go by.

Meh, same problem for me. I should probably just make them all links. Thanks for the catch.
