Car Registration


  • Try to get a look or demo of the software prior to the day so that you know what to expect.  The software UI is not at all intuitive.
  • Load a roster of the Pack before the day of PWD!  Will save lots of typing.  Each Den should be a separate "group"

Day of 

  • Try to have someone run a “pit stop” area (away from the registration desk) for last minute checks with tools, sand paper and extra weights/glue.  If you don't pass inspection, you must go to the pit crew and cannot continue registration
  • First station: Inspection
    • There are tools in the P32 Pinewood Derby box that helps you do the requirements checks.  You have to make sure of the following four (4) things:
      • weight <=5.0g 
      • all 4 wheels touch the track 
      • fits within "the box"
      • height can fit underneath the track finish line
  • Second station: Registration 
    • If you don't have the roster, you will need to type in the various fields
      • Last Name (suggestion: Just use the last initial, BUT this could lead to problems when creating the awards)
      • First Name
      • Car # (Auto assigned by the software)
      • Car Name (scouts some times need help in choosing; encourage them to keep it short)
      • Group (selected on the left nav, should have been pre-created)

    • Ensure that each car has a dot 
    • Try to have every division uses the same color dot 
    • Have each dot have the following info - this information is useful when queuing up the cars for their heats 
      • Car # (Car numbers are assigned by system )
      • Den #/Division
      • Car Name 

  • Third Station: Scout’s Choice Voting 
    • Prepare slips and ballot box for voting - voting is done per RANK and includes adults and siblings
