Derby 2009 a great success!

January 14th, 2009 by Peter Schmelzer

The Cub Scout Pack 300 annual Pinewood Derby was held last night, amidst the shouts and cheers of excited racers!

These guys had a ball making and painting cars from a block of pine, nails and wheels. It was great to see the creativity and effort the scouts put into their racers. More impressive was the good, clean fun expressed in the smiles and energy of the boys. I think this event is a favorite of the parents because of the bonding time it fosters with their child and family. The “open class” is raced by siblings of Cub Scouts, making this a true family event.

Cub Scouts is for boys in 1st through 5th grade. I highly recommend it to all families with boys, as it is fun with a purpose: building character. After Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts continues to build character appropriately for their age. Feel free to contact me about either; we’d love to have you involved!
