These are the Official Rules for the Seneca Waterways Council, District, and preferably Pack Pinewood Derby Races for 2018.  By standardizing the Rules, the intent is to create a fair environment for all participants while eliminating Rule differences between Districts and Packs which could lead to participants racing with an unfair advantage at District and Council Races.All Scouts will be held to these Rules and not knowing them is not an excuse for not following them.  All participants will be held to these Rules in the spirit of consistency for all Scouts.
