Have you ever wanted to learn how to build a Pinewood Derby car? We're hosting two workshops (April 20 and May 4) to get you up to speed on Pinewood Derby Racing 101. Our first session will focus on shaping and the general build guidelines for creating a car. The second session will focus on paint, details, and decorations.

Phil's Hobby Shop will be at both workshops to help you with your project. These workshops are free and open to the public.
