I am a new Cubmaster of a pack that has renewed its charter for the first
time in 10 years. The First Baptist Church of Newton, Pack and Troop 124
has been rechartered. Due to lack of leaders the unit was not recharted
some 10 years ago. Fortunately, all the equipment was left intact. As the
new Cubmaster we have a excellant opprotunity to provide a program to the
youths of Newton, Kansas. We have a very strong leader core at this time
and are building much involvement from the outside as well as our charter
One of the things I need to ask about now is this:
During our inventory of equipment, we found a 8 lane Pinewood Derby Track!
It was in the middle of being resurfaced when the pack folded. Our
intentions is to reduce it down to a four lane track and finish it for our
scheduled Pinewood Derby races in January. We would like to build a
electronic finish line, with timer if cost allows, to add to the track.
Can anyone provide me with a set of plans to build such a finish line?
With any new Pack and Troop, controlling costs is very important,
especially since we have not had the opprotunity to due any fund raising
yet. We do not want to buy a timer but build one in hopes of keeping cost
I hope to hear from you soon, please email me privately with plans if
possible. I am currently using Microsoft Word.
