We are the oldest active pack in Johnston, chartered to Northpoint Church since 1975, and now in 2020 chartered to Saint Paul Presbyterian Church.

Pinewood Derby Results

Posted on Mar 8 2021 - 10:16am

I hope everyone enjoyed the Pinewood Derby yesterday. The races themselves went very fast, and the boys looked like they had a good time. A BIG thank you to those that helped setup Friday night, and those that helped clean up after the race. Thanks to Johnston PD for acting as our judge again. Office Jodi had a challenge this year without being able to see all the cars together on the table at the same time. The results sheet can be found under Files\Pinewood Derby. Trophies will be awarded at Blue and Gold next month.
