Cub Scout Pack 113 held their annual Pinewood Derby at the Scout House in the basement of City Hall with a large turnout.

Scouts, Scout leaders and family filled the room as Derby Cars almost screamed down the track. Cub Scout Cory Bouschard kept the stats and as fellow Scout member, Mike Dias started each race.

Each participating Cub took a block of Pinewood and carved it into the shape of their "car" and added wheels. Lead was added by the adults to make the weight as even as possible. The Cub scouts could barely stay in their seats as the races continued.

When it all was said and done everyone had a great time and lots of yelling had taken place. The winners are: First place-Dakota Kasner, Second place-Cody Dias, Third place-Matthew Wahl and the winner in the category of Best Design was Andrew Prescott.

After the derby delicious pot luck was served to the delight of everyone in attendance. If you have a young man who is interested in the Scouting program in the Marcus area please contact Judy Heidesch at 712-376-4335 or Terry Lively in Cleghorn at 436-2226.
