Cresskill Cub Scout Pack 121
The overall aims of scouting are to develop a child's character, train him in good citizenship, and encourage him to become more fit—physically, mentally, and morally.
The vision of the Scouts BSA is to prepare America's youth to become responsible, participating citizens and leaders who are guided by the Scout Oath and Law.

Next Pack 121 - Pack meeting is our Pinewood Derby next Week, March 22nd at the Cresskill Community Center Pavailion at 6:00 pm race time is 6:30
Race day for our Pinewood derby is this next week on Wednesday, March 22nd at the outdoor Cresskill Community center Pavillion at 6:30 pm.
Note, this is outdoors. We are monitoring the weather and will move to the Legion for this event if the weather is incompatible with this event (i.e. cold and rainy)
We will start checking in cars at 6:00 pm, so that we can start racing as close to 6:30 as possible.
As a reminder,
Cars must be complete, paint dried, and ready to race by 6:30 pm. Be sure wheels are not stuck to the paint - add after paint is dry.
The maximum allowed weight for each car is 5 ounces.
We will weigh each car at check-in and any cars that are above weight will have to be modified at that time to reduce the weight.
Graphite must be added in advance of check-in. No modifications or adjustments to the cars are allowed once they have been checked in.
The pinewood derby rules are on our website at this link.
Once your scout's car is built, we recommend you put it away until race day, as the cars are not as durable as plastic or metal toy cars and will not handle rough play very well.
There will be trophies for first place in each age group and awards for the best-looking car and most unique car.
Looking forward to seeing you all on race day.
