District Pinewood Derby

Ishaan placed first, beating all the Tigers across Mountain View and Indian Peaks districts.
Kevin and Clayton had strong results in tough Wolf and Bear races.
Alec and Gabriel both placed second in their Webelos and AOL races.

Based on their top 2 finishes in the rank races, Ishaan, Alec, and Gabriel qualified for the overall district finals.  Gabriel came in 2nd of all the cars from all ranks.  Ishaan and Alec finished just off the podium in 4th and 5th place overall.

Thanks, boys, for representing our pack at the district race, and congratulations on the outstanding results!

It's been a while since we held our derby, and now all the area packs have completed their races, also.  The best cars from each rank will be racing against one another at the District Pinewood Derby on Saturday, May 7 at Calvary Bible Church, 615 Evans St. in Erie.  We can cheer our best on as they compete against the best cars from the whole district:

Tiger - Ishaan B.
Wolf - Kevin T.
Bear - Clayton V.
Webelos - Alexander J.
AOL - Gabriel M.

Everyone else is also invited to enter their car in a special open race this year, also.  Each car entered costs $5 to cover the insurance, patch, and other event costs (Pack pays for our winning cars).  There will be races for scouts, siblings, and adults held at the same event.  See the flyers below for details on this fun event for the whole family...

It is best to check in cars the night before if possible.  I'll be bringing our winning cars with me when I setup our pack's track for the race.  Check-in time is 6-8PM.  Parents of the winning racers, please let me know if you can come during that time to add graphite and deal with any issues during checking (fluctuation of weight, wheels no longer touching, etc.).  If not, please let me know if you'd like me to handle that for your son or if you want to deputize someone else.  It would be great to know what time you'd plan to be there, also, as I'll make sure to stay until you're all checked in, even we already have the track is setup and running.
