Congratulations to all of our racers this Saturday! We had a fantastic time at the Pinewood Derby. THANK YOU to all those who supported the Pack by volunteering your time and donations that made this event such a success. This is our most time intensive activity for the Pack and we truly appreciate all the help it takes to make it a memorable race for the kids.

Racers Start Your Engines!
Race weekend is here scouts!
Friday Night Registration and Set Up
5:30 p.m-7:30 p.m.
Pit Stop tables will be setup to aid with last minute adjustments to weights, wheels and lube. Make sure you run through the Pit BEFORE coming to the Registration table. Once a car is accepted for registration, it is NOT allowed to be touched again by anyone! If you need to make an adjustment after a car is registered, you will need to go through the registration process again.
Volunteers Needed! Sign Up Now!

We Need LOTS of Scouts! Siblings too! We will be sorting out the food after collection.
Saturday morning (NOV 11) we will meet at 8:45 a.m. at GBE to begin collected donated goods from our neighbors in Greenbriar.
WE NEED BOXES! Specific size: paper ream/ banker boxes
I have updated the website with an overall route map that includes all the dens. Now you can simply open your phone to check your routes!!
- Safety First!
- Parents should be taking the donations from the scouts and putting them into the cars.
- Kids should not be leaving the sidewalks to go into the streets or crossover without supervision.
- Stay with kids when they need to wait for a neighbor to go inside and gather collections.
- Do NOT let them go inside of people’s homes. If they have an emergency, please have an adult from our group supervise them.
- We need 1 Driver for each Den/ Group to drive the routes and act as a mobile collection point. Please see me at arrival if you would like to volunteer.
- Please knock on doors! We have seen a dramatic increase in donations when we started knocking. Many people just simply forget.
We will have Hot Chocolate, Coffee and snacks for everyone when they return from their routes!
