Cub scouts are off to the races

Feb 11, 2019

Scouts gathered on Saturday Feb. 9 to put their car creations to the test at the Marion Pack 32 Cub Scouts semi-annual Pinewood Derby.

Cub Scouts from Kindergarten to 5th grade built their pinewood derby cars and gathered at the Marion First Congregational Church Hall to see which was fastest.

Jake Goodwin took first place in the derby, with Jackson Daniel, and Peter Hurd taking second and third place. All three will move on to the regional pinewood derby races.

Josh Van Inwegen and Iain McManus took fourth and fifth place at the event, with Van Inwegen also taking home the award for Best Pack Spirit. 

Luke Roberge took home the award for “Most Likely to be Entirely Built by a Scout.”
