Additional trophies will be given out for the following categories:

Scout Theme

Additionally, each scouts time sheet will be printed and given to them after all the racing is completed.

Any scout that has not yet picked up their derby car may contact myself or Committee Chair, Dana Drees. Remember that adults and siblings are allowed to race as well and you can buy a car from the pack for $3.50 or the scout office for $3.99. Former cub scouts will compete in the “big kid” category.
