START YOUR ENGINES!!!!!
This weekend we had our annual Pinewood Derby Race. We had GREAT attendance from the Cub Scouts with 27 cars entered into the racing. And man, were these cars fantastic! The cubs put a lot of time, effort and imagination into our wonderful lineup of racers.
We got things started with our weigh-in to make sure all cars weighed no more than the maximum weight and then all of the cars were registered and logged in. Thanks to the volunteers who arrived early and helped us set up the track and a special thank you to Albert Vautour for all of his efforts tracking down trophies, ribbons and awards.
We ate a great potluck lunch and then got down to business. The Cubs were so excited and the races were really competitive. In the end, the Grand Champion racer was Mikey Jolley and his Penguin on the Run racing car. All the kids had a great time and the families seemed to love it too. It’s a Cub Scout perennial favorite, time to start thinking about your racer for next year!
