My district is running a pretty poor race thus far. I had to bug people via e-mail to see if there was even going to be a race. In mid March they finally said yes, but had not rules, time or date. My late March they said it was postponed. By a week ago I assumed it was going to die on the vine and began to help my son modify his car for the mid-America. Well now its up again for mid May and we are out of town. Apart from my general frustration, what are your district rules on allowing one scout to register a fellow scout's car who cannot attend in person? What about dropping the car off with the district staff?
Back when we lived in a district that had a district race, I believe the Scout had to be present. That made sense to us for a variety of reasons.Noskills wrote:what are your district rules on allowing one scout to register a fellow scout's car who cannot attend in person?

Not sure this is comparable, but how fast does an Indy car run if its driver is elsewhere?

Not many take advantage of it, but nice to have it in place if the date happens to overlap with a wedding in the family or some such other major family commitment.
I ran our district derby this year and the date of the race was published 4 or 5 months in advance of the race (as were the rules).
