Free Derby Race Kits from Sustainable Forestry Initiative

Free Derby Race Kits for Minnesota Packs

This year, Cub Scouts in packs in northern Minnesota will receive free SFI Race Kits for use in their Pinewood Derby.  Packs will receive one kit for every registered Scout as of November 2.

The donation of these kits is made possible through a partnership with the MN SFI Implementation Committee.  The wood blocks are made from a tree which was harvested this past spring at Camp Wilderness as part of the camp's forest management plan.  This June, Scouts planted 400 maple trees at the camp which will be tapped in the future to make Camp Wilderness Maple Syrup.

The Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) is the largest single forest certification standard in the world, and is a globally recognized Norther American standard composed of principles, objectives, performance measures and indicators, supporting sustainable forest management and responsible sourcing.

(  Photos must be submitted by February 28, 2014.  The Cub Scout who submits the winning design will win a $50 Amazon gift card.
