My name is Richard Pierce and I am Cubmaster of Pack 917 in Florissant,
Missouri and this is my first posting. We are in the North Star District of
the Greater St. Louis Area Council and are chartered to a Catholic parish.
I have two questions RE everyone's favorite subject, PINEWOOD DERBY!! Reply
direct to me or post your answer as you feel is appropriate.
1. Do most packs buy the cars for the boys or do they ask the boys to buy
their own? We have always bought them but are unable to this year and I
wondered how other packs handle it.
2. Does anyone have a foolproof scheme for racing off a den of 16 boys on a
3-lane manual track with no fancy timers or gates or anything?
Thanking everyone in advance,
