BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA PRESENT CUB COMMUNITY DAY EVENT AT SALMON RUN MALL ON SATURDAY, MAY 4th
(Watertown, NY) Join the Boy Scouts of America as they cheer members of the Cub Scouting program in their annual Tri-Rivers District Pinewood Derby. The derby will take place in Court near Gertrude Hawk with registration to begin at 9:30 a.m. and the race to begin at 10:30 a.m. at Salmon Run Mall. Membership and registration information will be available for those who are interested in scouting in the community.
The Pinewood Derby was started in California as a father/son activity for Cub Scouts in 1953. The event gained in popularity rather quickly and became an annual event for Cub Scout Packs near and far. Packs (boys in grades 1 – 4) have a local derby and the winners in each den go to the District level. Boys at each level are presented with prizes for Pinewood Derby car speed as well as creativity and enthusiasm.
Membership and registration is available to all school-age youth: Cub Scouts (ages 6-10); Boy Scouts (ages 11-17); Venture, Explorer or Sea Scouts (ages 14 – 20). The Council is always looking for volunteers to help in all levels of scouting throughout the area.
The Boy Scouts of America will offer a variety of programming, adventure and opportunity to anyone willing to explore the possibilities. For more information on this event or scouting in the North Country, please contact Kathy Montgomery, Tri-Rivers District Membership Marketing Chair at [email protected] or call 315-529-3838.
