Wow what great event we had on Saturday. We had 24 scouts and 16 outlaw cars compete. Thanks to our Troop leaders who helped with track setup, inspections, and running the software! I think all the scouts enjoyed running their cars. Each scout ran their cars 6 times and the software took the average speed to determine the winners. Preston Murray took first place overall and Wyatt & Ryan Ehinger took second and third along with Adam Couturier taking fourth overall. These 4 scouts can represent Pack 65 at the District Pinewood Derby on May 9 at David Westcott Buick. For those scouts click here to sign up (http://bsaonsc.doubleknot.com/event/alamance-pinewood-derby/1679655) the deadline is May 1 to register for this event. For the Outlaw race, it was a sweep by the Murray family with Spencer Murray in first, Ellie Murray second and Laura Murray in third, way to go Murray family. We expect lessons next year!

We had 10 cub scouts show up to test and a few more siblings to take a dip in the indoor pool. This test is required for summer camps. While the scout does not have to be a swimmer, they do have to show their level of ability to a certified swim instructor. If your scout did not make it to the swim test, another is being offered May 17 at the Triangle Sportsplex in Hillsboroughclick here for details (http://www.bsaonsc.org/Documents/2015Precampswimcheck.pdf) . Otherwise when they arrive at camp they will have to take the test which will slow down their check in process dramatically. We are planning on hosting a parents/leader retreat this summer to plan for the upcoming years events. We really need more help with planning all of these events, recruitment, popcorn and also discussing the upcoming changes to the program.
