GET READY TO RACE

Posted on Mar 8 2015 - 9:20am
Hi Pack!

I am sure many of you are working on or finishing your cars for this year's race over this weekend and next!  Here's a few notes about the schedule/process and links to the rules and helpful sites as you get ready to race!

Please note: 
  • This year we have additional awards for "Creativity" in each Den.  (So get creative!)
  • We also have races for parents and siblings as well.  (So join in the fun!
Monday 3/23 - Weigh In @ Brundieck House: 7587 Alyssa Road (6:00-7:30pm)
  • Everyone must check in their pinewood derby car on the day before the race.
  • If you cannot make it at this time, please contact me or your Den Leader to arrange a special time prior to the weigh in.
  • Purpose: We collect all the cars the night before the race and make sure they meet the rules (weight, dimensions, BSA wheels, etc.).  They are numbered and prepared to ship the next day to the race.
Tuesday 3/24 - Race Night @ Red Rock (6:45-8:00pm)
  • Please prep the family for the race by discussing good sportsmanship.  
    • Do Your Best
    • Respect others: Everyone has different skills
    • Follow the rules
    • Every competition has winners and losers (don't brag; don't be bitter)
    • Friends first, racers second
    • The link above provides something to read to your scout on these points.
    • My additional advice: Keep it fun!
  • Arrive at 6:30pm and Start at 6:45 sharp
  • Note: We will also take a couple of minutes between events to discuss the Friends of Scouting program and ask for everyone to consider donating a couple of dollars during the meeting.  (Bring a little cash [or a checkbook] if you may be willing to help out).

Helper #1
- www.pwdracing.com. Many people build their cars by going to the PWDRacing workshop in Rosemount. $20.00 per car. Generally they are open Monday - Thursday.

Helper #2- www.pinewoodderby.org.  Scouting's official internet resource for all things Pinewood Derby.  You can do further Googling and YouTubing galore and find a bounty of Pinewood information, but this is a great place to start.

Posted on Feb 9 2015 - 1:42am

Hi Pack!  Not everyone is familiar with the Blue and Gold Banquet... so I wanted to explain a little.  Here's the content of this email:

  • What is the Blue and Gold?
  • When is the Blue and Gold?
  • Where is the Blue and Gold?
  • What do we do there?
  • Who can go?
  • How much does it cost?
  • What do I need to bring?
  • What if I don't go?
  • Okay, so seriously, I can't get enough!  Tell me the history!
What is the Blue and Gold?

A celebration by Cub Scouts of the Scouting Anniversary Week  in February with a "birthday party" called the blue and gold banquet. In nearly all packs, the blue and gold banquet is the highlight of the year. It brings families together for an evening of fun and cheer. It's often the pack meeting for February.

If you have NOT sent me your scout's tshirt size, please let Tammy know asap, as we are finalizing the sizes soon.  THANK YOU!

INFORMATION:
I am coordinating t-shirt sizes for this year's Pack 56 t-shirt order.   If you are new to Pack 56, each Scout gets a free Pack t-shirt at Pinewood Derby time (these are similar to the t-shirts that you received when you joined).   What do you need to do?  Simply send me your Scout's t-shirt size.   Yep, it's that easy!  :)
