Baden Powell Council will be holding the annual Pinewood Derby at the Oakdale Mall on Saturday, Feburary 3rd, going on throughout the day, $5 is registration. Attached is a registration form with all the other details.
The Oakdale Mall Pinewood Derby is open to any racers! You do not have to be a top 3 finisher in your own pack to race. The cost is $5.00 and you register at the scheduled registration time for your Scout’s rank. Just look for the large Boy Scouts of America tent in the center of the mall for registration.
If you are able to and IF at all possible, try to give yourself enough time to walk around the mall and see the different displays set up. The team that puts this together every year does an AMAZING job making things fun and adventurous for the Cub Scouts and families. The Ceremony at noon is an event you do not want to miss! Beginning at one end of the mall, a bagpiper will play the bagpipes and following behind will be a color guard. As they walk the length of the mall to the ceremony location, Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts alike will fall in line behind the colors and follow them to the site. It’s a beautiful site to see so many scouters together in one place! I get goosebumps every year.
