Pack513 - Youth Protection Training

Posted on Mar 13 2018 - 7:13pm
Your YPT training is obsolete now that National has released a new Youth Protection Training. It's only available online and if it's not complete before summer camp, it could be a giant headache. You do not need to be a registered leader to complete this training, it's helpful for anyone dealing with youth.
With the next overnight camp being the June overnighter, please take the hour to complete this training before then.
The training can be accessed through the link below. 
When everyone knows the rules and expectations it’s just makes a smooth running program.


Pack 513 Pinewood Derby Tomorrow!!

Posted on Mar 2 2018 - 1:09pm

We hope you had fun cutting, painting, and finishing the Pinewood Derby car with your child(ren).  Now it's time to race and see if lady luck shines on your car.  The Pinewood Derby is all about learnig the steps involved in creating the car and getting to work with your child to create a car they like and are proud of. You can never predict how your car will actually run on the track. The most important thing is to remind the kids that it's not where you place in the race, but being proud of the car you built and cheering for everyone in the Pack.  Remember, cars must weigh 5oz or less. It's easier to add weight than remove. Bring a couple coins if you need to add extra weight after checking on the official scale. The Pinewood Derby is being held in the gym at Woodbury Elementary. 

A Couple of things for tomorrow:

  • We have access to the gym at 4pm. Anyone that wants to help setup, please arrive between 4-5. 
  • Please bring cash.  We will have Pizza, veggies, and pop available for a free will donation. (Suggested amount is $5-10 per family) This is not a fundraiser event. However, last year we were able to cover many of the pinewood derby costs from the pizza donations. 
  • Weigh in starts at 4:30. PLEASE ARRIVE BY 5:15 AT THE LATEST. It takes time for final adjustments, official car weigh in, and getting everyone in the system.  Race starts at 6pm!
  • The scouts will be voting amongst all of the scout-made cars in several fun categories. It's not just speed that matters.
  • Remember that siblings and parents can enter cars as well. They will race separately and are not eligable for any of the awards though.
  • Prepare to have fun!!  The kids will remember this event as adults.  Let's give them a great memory.
