About the Event

The First Annual  TAG Pinewood Derby and Family Potluck!!

Bring the whole family and have fun with a Pinewood Derby for both Kids and Adults!

This is a chance for guild members to get to know one another and each other's families. Come have a break enjoy the warm sunshine and have fun with the whole family at our first annual Pinewood Derby. 

Pinewood Derby is open to both adults and children. This would be a great project to work on with your kids while building your own car and teaching them how to build their own car. 

Remember in boy scouts when you would see all those kids that you know that they never actually touched that car and their dad was the only one interested in winning the race. That's not what this is for. 

Build your own car, let them build their own car.

This is also a potluck picnic so if you can please bring a dish to share and enjoy getting to know everyone in this community we've created. 

We will be located in the main shelter pavilion and there will be charcoal grills available for use.
