Check in Times for Ft. Clatsop District Pinewood Derby

The Ft. Clatsop District Pinewood Derby is just a few days away….Saturday, February 28th.

We will again be doing staggered check in time. This makes the check in process go smoother and keeps the younger boys from having to wait so long before racing.

Check in times are as follows….please be prompt and arrive at the BEGINNING of your check in time. Races for each rank are scheduled to start at the end of each check in time, late arrivals can not be added once a rank has started to race.

District Pinewood Derby Saturday at the KOA.  Check in times:
Webelos 1 and 2: 8:45
Bears: 9:00
Wolves: 9:15
Tigers: 9:30
 
If your scout is early for his check in time, he may check in early. However, please make sure there are no scouts behind him that that are of the rank that is currently checking in.
We don’t want anyone to miss their race!

As packs arrive with their cars, a representative for the pack should stay at the table with their scouts cars. As scouts arrive, they should take their car to the registration table….a car may not be checked in without the scout present. Pack leaders should NOT bring all of their confiscated cars to the registration table to check their entire pack in. We can not check cars in until the scout who owns it is present.

Thank you

Over the weekend Seaside’s Troop 642 collected 108 trees. They had collection sites in Seaside and Cannon Beach.

The Troop partnered again with Necanicum Watershed for this annual event. Once collected the trees were taking to The Mill Pond off Avenue S in Seaside. Those trees  are now fish habitats.

Troop 642 received a little help from a few Webelos from Pack 540 who were working on their World Conservation Badge.
