We are a large group of pinewood derby enthusiasts from all over the United States. Some of us only race on the local level in Den, Pack, District and Council level. Others of us have children who have out grown the local scene and now race at the professional league level know as proxy racing.
The Global Craftsman's cars are unique in that no two cars look the same. They might sacrifice some speed in order to set their car's style apart from the others. They set a standard for all cars after to be duplicated in design, paint and modifications. They use unique products which then become industry standards for all.
Global Derby Society
Here at Global Derby Society, we do not care how fast you can go, how well you can paint. We do not care which league you are affiliated with, or whose derby products you think is better. Pinewood derby has greatly evolved over the past years due to the professional league racer. Companies have stepped up to provide all racers, both league and local level, with better tools and racing equipment. No one company can claim responsibility for this progression. Each has taken time to assess other company’s products, listened to feedback from racers and then tweaked their products accordingly.

2200+ miles driving I am home. Got a ticket too!!! It was for 26 miles an hour over the speed limit I got caught doing 71 in a 45!!
ohhh did I leave out the part where it was in a construction zone!!! I can't wait to see how much this one is going to cost me DAMN those Indiana police!!
We did pass through Zanesville during the whole wildlife extravaganza they had going on, but never once saw Simba or any of his pals!
We went to Princeton, New Jersey for a pretty big family function. Way too much eating, way to much money spent in preparation as well as traveling expenses. There was a huge party for my nephew and my sister wen way overboard, but fun was had by all. There is a photograph below of a huge inflatable screen and all the kids did a late night movie outside in the backyard. The movie was Transformers 3d and during one of the fight scenes the adult men got Nerf balls and threw them over the screen at the kids and they thought at first it was part of the movie. The other photograph is a picture of one of the center pieces from the party. Yes that is a gummy worm and it weighed over 5 lbs!!!!! I doubt anyone will eat it as everyone who attended had to touch it to see if it was real!!
I have a ton of emails you all have sent me so I have quite a bit of catch up reading and forum readings to do as well. I can't wait to see what I was accused of or that I did while away!! It is important to keep my status
