Pack 766 2008 Pinewood
Congratulations to all the Scouts, siblings and family members for another day full of wonderful memories! Having worked diligently over the last month in preparation for this event the Scouts were very resourceful in designing their cars: a ping pong ball for the Lucky Leprechaun; using a GI Joe item to make a Military Tank Derby Car; and of course the French Fry Mobile had to have a ketchup packet. The Scouts creativity and abilities in designing their own cars were amazing along with their positive and upbeat attitudes throughout the entire day. Through the cooperation of the entire pack we all persevered in making 2008 Pinewood Derby a record breaking performance.
With the threat of rain on Sunday, January 27, the Pack 766’s annual Pinewood Derby was moved to a new location: Carden Academy in
Top honors in the event went to:
Best Design – Ryan Schmitz
Most Creative – Brian Clem
Most Original – Brandon Yi
Following the conclusion of the races, we gorged on El Pollo Loco Chicken, an endless bounty of fruit and at least the kids got their fill of dessert and Julie Miller's Darn Good Chocolate Cake (which at least I want the recipe for). I know all the kids went home with a great sugar high - next year, we need to assign a Dessert Monitor! A special thank you to El Pollo Loco for their generous discount and friendly and speedy customer service.
Thanks to everyone for braving the cold and coming out. It was wonderful that the weather cooperated until everyone was safe and warm at home! Thanks to all the volunteers who helped out – unfortunately too numerous to list here. And most of all, thanks to our wonderful Co-Chairs, Mark Robertson and Tom Miller without whom this event wouldn't have happened.
