The Knights of Columbus Pinewood Open is intended to be an event for the whole family! You may enter as many cars as you like. As it is an "Open", anyone may enter cars, boys, girls, young or old. We use the size, weight and height rules of the scouts, however, you may make your car out of any material, 3D print it, carve an organic car, use your imagination! The Michigan State Council suggests all proceeds go towards Coats for Kids. To increase fundraising, in addition to car entry fees, consider produc-ing a race day program with local business ads, and have awards like "Best Super Hero Theme", "Best Big 10 School Entry" and "Most Creative Design" that entrants and spectators vote on with cash donations, the most cash donated for a specific car wins!
