Mayville Cub Scout Pack 126 held its annual Pinewood Derby race at Chautauqua Lake Central School's cafeteria recently. Out of 39 members of the Pack, 36 scouts worked hard on their cars and watched enthusiastically as their cars raced down the track.
This event is one of scouting's traditions. Each year brings just as much excitement as the previous year. In addition, the derby can present an opportunity to teach good sportsmanship and cover an elective or requirement necessary to meet rank guidelines.
Each participant received a 2014 Pinewood Derby patch. Trophies were awarded to the first, second and third place winners for each den. In addition, trophies were given to the first, second and third place overall winners in the whole pack.
