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.

Some of you may know me, I'm Wooden Shoe. I have done very little "league racing". I've been to the Lima race the last two years and have met many of the Ohio and Kentucky racers there. It was loads of fun. I run our Awana race at our church and put on two workshops each year for our club. I also help out other cub scouts and Awana racers that want some extra help. I enjoy the different forums for pinewood derby racing and have learned alot from many of you over the years. I wanted to see what Mood was up to over here. Looks like more fun and games with a little learning along the way. Good Luck Mood with your new endeavor!
P.S. Mood, any way I could get an extra special avatar for your new forum?
