2019 District Pinewood Derby Results
The 2019 Neuse River District Pinewood Derby was held on Saturday, March 2 in Knightdale with nearly 80 Lion, Tiger, Wolf and Bear Cub Scouts and Webelos participating.
All manner of interesting, colorful and amazing cars were submitted for the Originality and Craftsmanship competitions in each division. Judging was done after check-in the night before, and it was very difficult to choose! There were multiple 3-way ties in several groups/categories, so additional judges had to be brought in to determine the final winners.
The Speed competition started mostly on schedule, and went along nicely with emcee Jen Scoggins from Pack 500 keeping everything moving and all the Cubs/Webelos excited. Her knock-knock jokes got lots of crowd response — some of which earned a deserved groan. (Just one example: Q: What is the loneliest cheese? A: Provolone.)
As Round 1 proceeded, it was evident that all the speed races were going to be close and the winners would be separated by only a fraction of a second. The fastest car from each Division (Lions/Tigers, Wolf/Bear, Webelos) was advanced to the Grand Finals, their cumulative times reset to zero, and a nail-biting three more race heats took place to determine the Fastest Overall.
Thanks to all the Pack leaders, parents and Cub Scouts that participated, and especially the many volunteers that gave of their time to make the event possible, including (but not limited to):
- Michael Harrelson, PWD Committee Chair
- David Harris, PWD Committee/Race Official
- Scott Schnegelberger, PWD Committee/Race Official
- Bethie Taylor, PWD Committee/Race Official
- Jenn Scoggins, Emcee
Congratulations to all of our 2019 winners listed below.! Each of these Cub Scouts/Webelos received a trophy for their achievement.
