Hi Pack 53!

It's that time of year again when scouts and siblings start thinking about how they are going to dominate the Pine Wood Derby!  The specifics for this (school) year"s event are in the attached document.

The race schedule is TENTATIVE.  Please let me know if there are any competing events that affect a particular age group so that we may adjust the schedule to accommodate.

We will be handing out derby kits free of charge to all scouts at the Pack Party next Thursday.  Additional kits may be purchased for $5 each.  Top reasons to buy additional kits:

Why let your scout have all the fun Ð parents can race too in our Open Class!

Keep siblings engaged while building the cars and on Race Day!

Have extra parts available for the occasional whoops!

Try experimental designs in the open class without your scout jeopardizing his chances to dominate his peers!

If you are unable to attend the Pack Meeting next Thursday, please contact me at or 838-6405 to arrange picking up/dropping off kits.

 Good luck to you all (except the Webelos I's; Spencer plans to crush you guys!) and have a great Race Day!
