In Case You Missed It: Pinewood Derby at Markland Mall
Markland Mall was the perfect venue on the day of the big race! The setup crew arrived early at 8 AM before the shops were open, and the mall walkers were still making their laps. After we laid out our track and set up some display cars, groups of people routinely stopped by to share their excitement to see the Cub Scouts at the Mall. I spoke to one employee of Kay Jewelers as he recalled memories of when he was racing a car that his dad had helped him build, and later he expressed interest in having a mall wide competition amongst fellow employees next year so he can have another chance to race.
When the race finally kicked off at 11 AM it was soon made clear that we had some close competition. Jim Riddle, our volunteer host for the event, remarked that he was “sure glad we had a timer and he wasn’t responsible for correctly judging which car actually crossed the finish line first.” Even though it was so close, the 1st place trophy had to go to someone, and Cameron E. from Pack 3540 took home that honor. Casey D. from Pack 3599 won best in show for this wonderfully patriotic American flag car, and let me tell you this thing looked cool! I have several more stories from the pinewood derby that I would love to share with you, but I don’t want to drag on too long. Suffice it to say it was a wonderful day to see support for Scouting in the community, sharing memories of Scouting’s impact with new friends, seeing families smiling together, and watching the promise of Scouting being delivered.
