Come visit the PineWoodDerbyWorkshop on the Bus at the NKGH/MoKan Camporee and Outdoor Expo.
We will not be building Cub Scout PineWood Derby cars, but Boy Scouts can make a personal holder for their .22 ammo for the rifle range. It'll even have a screw eye or a drilled hole so you can wear it on a lanyard around your neck. (You'll have to come up with your own lanyard.)
We'll be parked within a hundred feet of an electrical outlet . . . gotta be able to operate the bench tools . . .
We want you to know that "the wheels on the bus go 'round and 'round; so come on aboard and check out Big Sally the Shop Bus.
When & Where
I had a shop in Carrollton in my garage for just years till I retired from teaching high school
When we moved to Missouri, Texas Scouting Friends asked for support with their PineWood Derby cars, so I refitted an old forty-foot bus into a rolling woodshop. Near as I can tell, it's the only one of its kind in the country.
I started as a Cub Scout in 1952 back in Amarillo. Since then I've been a Den Leader, a Cubmaster, and a Scoutmaster. I started helping other families with their cars when my Eagle Scout was a Wolf Cub twenty years ago. The PineWoodDerbyWorkshop just "sort of growed" from there
I love building PineWoodDerby cars in my woodshop.
I enjoy even more watching kids' faces (and their parents') when they figure out a particularly tricky bit.
