On Saturday, February 15, 2015 Pack 27 held its annual Pinewood Derby Race Day in the Holmes building at AOOL.  I am very proud of all the efforts the boys put into building their cars, and I greatly appreciate all the help from the Dads who came out Friday evening to help us setup the track for the event, and those that stayed behind to help us take it down and clean up.  Also many thanks for all the baked goods everyone donated for our snack stand at the event.
All of the boys are to be congratulated, as they really did their best for this event.  The winner of each Den is invited to participate in the Northern New Jersey Council Ramapo Valley District Pinewood Derby to be help on April 18, 2015 at 9:00am at the Wayne Boys & Girls Club.  Our Den 1st Place winners are:
Tigers - Noah Mansson
Wolves - Elias Brown
Bears - George Hamilton
Webelos - Jaiden Salej

If any of the above Scouts can not make it to the district PLEASE let me know so we can send an alternate as we are only allocated 4 slots for the race.  Further details for the district race can be found at District Pinewood Derby Info for April 18-Incl Checkin Info   The registration fee for this event is paid for by the Pack.

Our Grand Finale Winners which will be awarded trophies at the Blue & Gold were:
  • 1st Place - Jaiden Salej
  • 2nd Place - George Hamilton
  • 3rd Place - Elias Brown

Our Special Category Winners which will receive plaques at the Blue & Gold dinner were:
  • Most Unusual - Sebastian Simpson
  • Most Creative - Kenny Kramer
  • Best Workmanship - Joseph Messere
  • Best Paintjob - Jaiden Salej
Attached below is a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet with the results of every race on race day, so that your son can see how he did & plan for next year.  All Pinewood Derby participants will receive a patch for participation in the event, and ribbons will be given for 1st-5th in each Den at the Blue & Gold dinner.

Again great job by all who participated in this year's Pinewood Derby!  Lastly if any parents have great photos of the event please email some of them to me at     I often miss some of the excitement when I am working the computer behind the scenes.

Yours in Scouting
