Scouts, get ready to build your engines! Old Town Ace Hardware is hosting a series of pinewood derby workshops for local Cub Scouts. During select Sundays in January, the store will provide wood cuts, sandpaper, and work stations for scouts to prep their derby cars.
The store asks that participating Scouts trace their car designs on their woodblocks prior to arriving at the workshops, where skilled artisan Richard Lenegan will assist with derby car woodcuts. Once cut, Scouts can sand their cars and peruse the store’s selection of official BSA pinewood derby merchandise, including decals, graphite, weights, paints, sandpaper, and derby kits.
The store kindly requests a $1 donation per woodcut to benefit Boy Scouts of America and Children’s National, our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Complimentary popcorn will be served during the event.
For additional information on the event, please contact store manager Aileng Miller by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or contact the store directly during regular business hours (M-S 8-8, Sun. 10-6) at (703) 566-7040.
