Pinewood Derby Page now Live

All the information Scouts need to get their cars (and parents!) ready for Pinewood Derby is now on one page that can be found in the navigation bar at the top of our web site.

Information includes:

  • Pack 502 Pinewood Derby Rules for 2015 (downloadable, printable version)
  • Schedule of events for Pinewood Derby weekend
  • Helpful links and tips
  • Derby history and fun facts

Please be sure to have your car as close to final as possible by 1/5 in order to get your car weighed in Hammill Hall prior to our first den meeting of 2015.  If you weigh your car on 1/5, you will be able to adjust it as necessary and then bring it back for final weigh-in on Friday 1/9.

Superkicks: Special discounts for Pack 502

Following up from last month’s demonstration, as a special treat for our pack, Superkicks has extended invitations to all cub scouts in Pack 502 to try their black belt leadership academy located on 521/Lancaster Hwy in the Hunters Crossing shopping center (near Dunkin Donuts) for free for 30 days – or get $200 discount off a family enrollment.

You first set an introductory private lesson with Miss Francie by calling or texting 704-575-9588.  By having a private lesson you can ask any questions, your son (or anyone else in your family for that matter) can see if s/he would be interested.

They also have summer camps available.

There is no obligation and they have flexibly payment plans to make it affordable for just about anyone.

Enjoy!
