Gentlemen, start your engines!
Many of our local Murphy Cub Scouts got together on Friday and Saturday, January 19th and 20th, to compete in the annual Pinewood Derby races. Several local Cub Scout Packs competed in the event. Packs 1776, 1783, and 1789 were well represented.
Pinewood Derby is just one of the fun events our Scouts participate in during the year. From camping and hiking to food drives and city-wide cleanups, Scouting helps our young boys grow and become active members of the community.
The annual Pinewood Derby races highlight the hard work the scouts put into their cars. From designing, to building, to racing, the scouts put in many hours getting their creations ready for the big day.
The top three racers in each rank received a trophy. Even siblings and parents could enter their creations. The top two winners from each pack then competed to be crowned the City of Murphy champion.
After the final Pack races on Saturday, the City of Murphy Championship races were held. With scale speeds of over 210 MPH, the racing was really exciting. The City of Murphy winners were as follows:
1st Place Luke S. (Pack 17)
2nd Place Kristian L. (Pack 17)
3rd Place Ethan M. (Pack 17)
4th Place Dylan S. (Pack 17)
5th Place Cameron M. (Pack 17)
6th Place Zachary J. (Pack 17
