scouts-l Mail Archive for March of 2000: Delay Crossover vs. Pinewood Derby
Mon Mar 06 2000 - 22:04:15 CST
The desire to participate in pinewood derby was recently cited as a reason to
delay Webelos to Scout crossover. But the Webelos really need to cross over
in the vicinity of February.
Our district's Pinewood Derby participation criteria avoided this problem by
adding a note to the category definitions:
"The 5th grade Webelos category includes new 5th grade Boy Scouts who
participated with their packs this year. "
This type of rule could benefit districts/councils who hold pack races up
thru February and district/council races in March or later.
I you think that it would apply to your district, print it and send it to
your district and council Cub Scout Program Chairman before autumn, since the
promotional material will probably be finalized in the September / October
