The Scouts from Troop 575 would like to put on a live, virtual Pinewood Derby for the Cubs of the Northern Trails District. The race will be live-streamed, allowing your Cub families to watch from home.
Take the risk out of missing the most anticipated part of the Cub program year! (( aside from Daycamp :) ))
If your pack is interested in taking advantage of this offer from Troop 575 (their Scouts are keen to put this on!), please respond to the poll using the link below. The Derby will be held in January, allowing plenty of time to get cars built and decorated.
