Cub Pack 809 held its Pinewood Derby March 15 at Premier Living Suites in Oswego.
Along with the excitement of racing, the boys also got a visit from Oswego Speedway superstars: Anthony “The Hawk” Losurdo, Stephen Gioia III, Camden Proud, Mike Bruce and Rob Pullen. The drivers also provided the countdown to start the racing!
The Oswego Speedway donated racing simulators for use after racing was done.
Along with first-, second- and third-place awards, certificates were handed out for most creative, awarded to a car based on a cruise ship, most colorful for a car covered with glitter, best video gamed themed for a car with Legos and best Cub Scout themed.
This pack meets at 6:30 p.m. Tuesdays at Fitzhugh Park Elementary School to learn about core values and character development through fun activities, games, crafts and field trips.
They learn about cooperation, respect, citizenship and positive attitude while abiding by the founders view that “Cub Scouts is a Game with a Purpose.”
Past events have included, bowling, camping at Jellystone, and an overnight at Midway Drive in theatre, an overnight at the MOST, roller skating and numerous camp outs.
