BSA Cub Scout Pinewood Derby Race begins | Community Spirit
Montgomery, AL: More than five different Cub Scout Packs from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in The Montgomery Alabama Stake will gather together Saturday to compete in the Annual Pinewood Derby race at the Church on Carter Hill Rd.
The original Pinewood Derby began in 1953 by Donald Murphy who wanted to, “devise a wholesome, constructive activity that would foster a closer father-son relationship and promote craftsmanship and good sportsmanship through competition.” Today that traditions continues as Cub Packs gather to compete.
Saturday’s race will start begin at 8 AM with a 45 minute weigh-in of cars. There will be three race classes: Class A, for 10-year-old; Class B, for 9-year-old; and Class C, for 8-year-old. When scouts aren’t racing they will be engaged in other team building activities such as building and decorating stands for their derby car, competing in relay races and playing games. The morning will end with lunch and awards presentation.
