Welcome Cayuga Scouts & Scouters

Covering Cayuga County and Red Creek,

Cayuga County District

encompasses the area of the former Cayuga County Council.

Welcome to Cayuga County District

Named after the Cayuga Indian Tribe. A wandering nomadic
tribe, having traveled around the northeast, never having a permanent
settlement, the Cayuga Indians came to the area of New York in the
1500’s. They were known as fierce warriors, who forced the Huron and
Algonquians, (the original tribes of New York), out of this territory.
As the early colonists arrived in North America searching for a better
way of life, the Indians and colonists shared ideas and knowledge.

Dremel Pinewood Derby Days at Lowe’s is where champions are born (or at least have a lot of fun)

This is the place where champions are born. Where blocks of wood are transformed into museum-worthy works of art. Where everything is sacrificed in the name of speed.

Or, failing that, this is the place where Cub Scouts and their moms or dads come to bond and have a whole lot of fun building a Pinewood Derby car.

This Pinewood Derby season, race to your nearest Lowe’s Home Improvement Store for Dremel Pinewood Derby Days.

That’s where you’ll get the materials and knowledge you need to make this the best Pinewood Derby ever for your son. After all, Pinewood Derby isn’t just about building the fastest or best-looking car. It’s about bonding with your son to create something he can be proud of.

What are Dremel Pinewood Derby Days?

Your local Lowe’s store will host Pinewood Derby car clinics to share tips and tricks for making the fastest cars on race day. Everyone who attends gets:

  • A how-to demonstration
  • Step-by-step instructions for building a car
  • A Pinewood Derby Days patch

That’s all for the low, low price of free!

When are Dremel Pinewood Derby Days?

  • Saturday, Jan. 9, 2016
  • Saturday, Feb. 6, 2016

Be sure to give your store a call prior to attending to verify that one is taking place at your Lowe’s location.

What if we can’t attend?

Dremel and Lowe’s are committed to making your Pinewood Derby race a success, so if you need any help with Dremel products during your derby construction project, call the Dremel experts at 1-800-4-Dremel.

Basically they’re your Pinewood Derby pit crew.

Where can I learn more?
