Crofton Pack 731 Announces Pinewood Derby Schedule

Crofton MD Events –

Pinewood derbyCrofton Pack 731 has a terrific website and online newsletter, and I always enjoy reading about their activities.  It’s been many years since my sons were cub scouts, but we have fond memories of Crofton Pack 731.  ‘Guess that’s why I subscribe to their RSS feed…  Who wouldn’t love to add another smile in their day?

One of our fondest memories from Crofton scouting days is the Pinewood Derby.  I had to laugh at how excited my husband was when Steve brought home his first pinewood derby kit, and I laughed even more as I watched “the expert” instill his wisdom in our oldest son about how to build the fastest, sleekest, hottest car in Crofton.  I remember it was glossy orange, with some black – and it didn’t win, much to the chagrin of both Larry and Steve.  But they did have an incredible father-son time together building and racing the car. 

Over the next couple of years, Tim also became a cub scout and, by then, our family car factory was one of the highlights of our year.  More recently, I watched Tim in his role as a dad, helping his own son build a pinewood derby entry.  More smiles!  Well, we have two more grandsons who may yet bring home a Pinewood Derby win. 

Today’s Crofton cubscouts have been building their cars under the watchful eyes of grown-ups in their families for the past several weeks, and the big event takes place on Saturday at Crofton Elementary School .  If you’re feeling a little nostalgic about those good ol’ days, check out Crofton Pack 731’s website for the racing schedule.

Congratulations to the grown-ups of Crofton Pack 731 for creating and maintaining such a neat website!
