The cheers and groans bounced off the walls of the Wellington School gym Sunday as 19 Cub Scouts from Pack 199 participated in the annual Pinewood Derby.
All of those participating received a medal or a ribbon. Awards were also given for the fastest cars and best designs.
Awards were as follows:
Scout Design Best of Show—Jensen Olsen.
Scout Design Most Original—Brock Leibhart.
Father/Business Division Best of Show—DSK Irrigation, Steve Baker.
Father/Business Division Most Original—Farm Bureau Financial Services, Kelly Vitosh.
Mayor’s Choice for best overall design—Colin O’Neil.
Scout Division, fastest car—tie for first—Brock Leibhart and Jensen Olsen.
Father/Business first place, fastest car—Farm Bureau Financial Services—Kelly Vitosh.
Father/Business second place, fastest car—Grosch Irrigation—Nate Vitosh.
Pack 199 is sponsoring a pancake supper April 27 from 5-7 p.m. at Imperial United Methodist Church. Cost of the meal is $4 for those under age 10 and $6 for those ages 10 and up.
Proceeds from the meal will go toward funding a trip for Boy Scouts to the national Jamboree in Virginia in eight years.
Scoutmaster Nate Vitosh said the scouts are hoping to raise most of the approximately $1,800 per youth cost for the trip. The present Cub Scouts will be Boy Scouts at that time.
