On Saturday May 18, 2019 Pio Pico District had its first District Pinewood Derby. According to Mr. Louis Garcia, Pack 919, Cubmaster and organizer of the event, 24 participants were involved in the Derby.
The location where the Pinewood Derby was hosted, was at Windermere Park, La Mirada, CA. The area was just right for the amount of participants.
A great thank you to Mr. Louis Garcia for organizing a successful event. Also, thank you to Dona Garcia, Pack 919 Den Leader, Sophia Antunes, Pack 219 Committee Chair, Eloy Antunes Pck 219 Assistant Cubmaster and Mr. Morales, Troop 438 and his staff for manning the timing and recording all the races 25 total. Their hard work deserves a big applause and appreciation for having a very successful event. Also, thanks to all the parents, friends, and families that came out to support all the Scouts.
All the Scouts had a great time watching their car race against others. There was great anticipation, laughter, oohs!, aahs! and yes!!! Certificates for all participants were handed out and special recognition for categories in creativity, paint design, fastest car. Medals were given to 1st, 2nd, 3rd winners and 4th place received a pin.
Thank you and I appreciate your dedication!
