Pinewood Derby


Pack 97's annual Pinewood Derby will be on Saturday, March 7th in the Parish Hall. The cars were distributed at the December Christmas party. If you were not able to attend the Pack Meeting, we will have the cars available at the den meetings.

All moms, dads, brothers, sisters and family dogs can build your own car and race as well. We will have a Family Derby on the same day as the Pinewood Derby. To participate you only need to pay $5 to purchase the car (the pack will provide your car on receipt of payment).

All cars that participate in the derby MUST follow the rules. Cars in violation of the rules will not be allowed to race. Car check-in will be on Friday, March 6th.

The last day to register online is Tuesday, Mar. 3rd.

January Pack Hike

The Pack will start 2015 with a hike to a local historical site - Boone's Cave Park in Davidson County, NC.

We will meet at 9:00am at the picnic shelter parking area and hike about 4 miles. This will also be a backpacking hike for our Bear and Webelos scouts (8:30am arrival for backpacking). Keep in mind that space is limited for this program. First come first serve so be sure to register early.

Please be sure to register on the pack's event page so that we know you are coming.

You can read the hike flyer for details.

Also you can visit the Davidson County website for more information on the park itself.
