OSWEGO, NY – Cub Scout Pack 809 had an Exciting Pinewood Derby.
This event was held today (March 15), at Premier Living Suites in Oswego thanks to the generosity of the owner Patrick Furlong.
Along with the excitement of racing, the boys also got a visit from Oswego Speedway superstars: Anthony “The Hawk” Losurdo, Stephen Gioia III, Camden Proud, Mike Bruce and Rob Pullen.
The drivers also provided the countdown to start the racing!
The Oswego Speedway was kind enough to donate its time and racing simulators for use after racing was done.
Along with first, second and third place awards, there were certificates handed out for most creative, awarded to a car based on a cruise ship, most colorful for a car covered with glitter, best video gamed themed for a car with Legos and best cub scout themed!
This pack meets on Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. at Fitzhugh Park School to learn about core values and character development through fun activities, games, crafts, and field trips, that will be carried with them into adulthood.
They learn about cooperation, respect, citizenship, and positive attitude all while abiding by the founders’ view that “Cub Scouts is a Game with a Purpose.”
Past events have included, bowling, camping at Jellystone and an overnight at Midway Drive-in theatre, an overnight at the MOST, roller skating and numerous campouts.
