  • Powder Puff Derby Event Information

    Powder Puff Pinewood Derby event will be held Sunday, February 25, 2018. Please talk with your Girl Scouts and Parents to ensure they are aware of this event. This year we will continue to keep open the Siblings Class Race . Girl Scouts will be the only ones allowed to win the larger trophies. The Winner of the Sibling class will win a trophy.

     

    Scoring will use the Elapsed Time Method

     

    Using this method, each car races 6 times. Once in each lane, as computer assigns order randomly. The slowest individual race time of 6 races will be dropped. Only the fastest 5 times will be totaled as the Final Time Scored. The record times will be taken at the end of each heat. Final Time Scored will be added together for total overall time. At the end of racing, the fastest 6 cars with the least time will move on the the Final Grand Championship. There is no accounting of individual heat victors. In fact, the second place winner in all of its heats could end up the winner because the first place heat winners could have slow results in other heats. This method lacks drama and does cause some confusion among the spectators, but it is the most objective way to determine the fastest car.

         

              Final Grand Championship Race -- The fastest 6 cars will Race 6 times, once in each lane for a second time. The Slowest individual race time of 6 races will be dropped. The Totals of the 5 fastest race times will determine the GRAND CHAMPION!, 2nd, 3rd places

     

    Troop 1569 Power Puff Derby is using an electronic start gate and an electronic finish line that displays the Sequence of Finish and Elapsed Time. Elapsed Time will be on the race side of the track time display, The Sequence of Finish will be on both sides of the finish line track display.

     

    We use Grand Prix Race Manager to run the races. It allows us to run Perfect-N-Races. Each racer gets to run on each lane in the track to make sure that a bad run will not affect their overall placement. It is also used so that the cars run at different times in the race. That way a Girl Scout doesn’t get bored because her troop raced first and she has nothing to keep her engaged.

    Sportsmanship and Good Citizenship is taught by following the derby rules and cheering on friends and troop partners as they race against others in the group.

     

    Personal Achievement comes to any girl who picks up a woodworking tool and shapes raw wood into a sleek design. By learning woodworking, she prepares herself to serve in the Girl Scouts service projects.

     

    Family Understanding is enhanced because building a pinewood derby car puts the Scout and family into a close and sometimes intense learning experience over, potentially, many hours.
