While cleaning out his garage, Tim Bachelder found a bin full of these old pack shirts. These were the “Class B” shirts the pack used prior to Davis and I joining. We’ve had two different pack shirts since then!

We are going to sell these to pack members for $5 each. We have several Adult Larges, but also mediums and smalls. Youth sizes range from small to large.

We will have a table set up at the Pinewood Derby as well as at the next pack meeting. First come, first serve!

Pinewood Derby — THIS FRIDAY!

Our annual Pinewood Derby is this Friday, January 24th. It will be in the Ministry Center at Trietsch UMC (where we normally meet for pack meetings).

Check-in, with official weighing, begins at 6:15 PM. Racing begins promptly at 7:00 PM.

**IF YOUR SCOUT DO NOT CHECK-IN BEFORE RACING COMMENCES, HIS CAR WILL HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL THE END OF RACING TO MAKE ITS RUNS.**

The track we are using this year has four lanes, so each car will run four heats, one in each lane. We will take the car’s fastest time of the four as its official time for determining results.

REMEMBER: Scout cars can NOT weigh more than 5 ounces. Outlaw cars cannot weigh more than 7.5 ounces. All cars must be under the 5-inch height limit, or they will not fit under the finish gate.

During racing, it is important that Scouts and siblings sit back from the track. We will assign track duties for the retrieval of cars from the finish line to certain Scouts. These are the only children which should be near the track. Our track host would be very appreciative of parents talking about this with their Scouts and other attending children beforehand.

If you have any questions, please contact your den leader, TJ, or Chris. See everyone Friday night!

UPDATE: All Scouts should be in their Class A uniforms for the Derby.
