Cub Scouts host Pinewood Derby
FAIRLAWN — Cub Scout Pack
3390 hosted the Old Portage District Pinewood Derby
inside Summit Mall March 18. Fifty-two Scouts from 12
different packs participated in the event. A crowd of
more than 160 people gathered to watch the racers compete
for top honors in the Tiger Cub, Cub Scout and Webelos
The derby cars raced down the six-lane aluminum track to the sounds of contemporary music. Races were monitored via a computer, which recorded results that were accurate up to one-thousandth of a second. A large projector system was used to immediately display the results to the crowd. Shown above right, children of all ages surround the track to get a closer look at the speeding cars. More than 160 people attended the event.
Webelos winners are pictured above, from left: Jacob Heffernan, Pack 3380, third place, with an average scaled speed of 225.3 mph; Shawn Hauffman, Pack 303, second place, with an average scaled speed of 226.2 mph; and Mike Newcomb, Pack 3001, first place, with an average scaled speed of 227.1 mph.
