Pinewood Derby

posted Feb 25, 2016, 5:59 PM by Cub Scout

Cub Scout Pack 508 in Ham Lake held their annual Pinewood Derby on January 23.  Nearly 50 youth raced for a chance to enter the District Pinewood Derby later this spring.  Three Cub Scouts from each grade level, or Den, advance to that race.  The Pinewood Derby is a race using five-ounce wooden cars designed and built by the Scouts with the help of their parents.  Each year brings new and unique designs.

As part of the event, Pack 508 held their annual “Fundracer” for Ham Lake area businesses.  Each business donated to the Pack in exchange for a chance to race their own Derby car.  All proceeds are used by Pack 508 to cover program costs, awards, patches, building rental, fees, field trips and Scouting adventures.  The Pack would like to thank the following businesses for their participation:
