Cub Scout Pack 3

Eagles View Church Saginaw, Texas

The Theme of this Month is Compassion

Our next Pack meeting is March 27th. We would love for your den to share what they have been working on as a den or a short skit. How can we show compassion to each other and what does that mean to you?

Pinewood Derby

If anyone is available to help set up the Pinewood Derby, please be at Eagles View Church at 7:00 p.m. on Friday March 20th. If you can help please contact Tim Rowell at 817-673-0526 or email at

Pinewood Derby is on Saturday, March 21, 2015 at Eagle's View Church. Registration begins at 8:30 am and ENDS at 9:00 am. During registration, your car will be weighed and given a number and placed in the lineup. Races will begin at 9:00 am, so it is imperative that you arrive and get your car registered as early as possible. Again, races will begin at 9:00 am with the Tiger Den and will progress through the dens. Finally, there will be a Grand Championship race which will determine our Pack 3 Champion! After all the Cub Scouts have raced, there will be a race for any interested siblings!

After the Pack 3 Champion has been decided, we'll have an award ceremony. Every Cub Scout racer will be awarded a Pinewood Derby participation patch for a job well done! The first, second, and third place racers from each den will also receive a ribbon. And the first, second, and third place racers from the entire pack will receive a really cool trophy. But that's not all! We will also be awarding ribbons in five other categories: Safest Car (slowest), Best Design (a car done with the least adult assistance), Best Collaboration (a car done with a LOT of adult assistance), Most Colorful, and Best Themed Car (for example, last year we had several TARDIS cars).

This event does take some time to get through, but it is so much fun for all the boys. So we will be have a snack bar with lots of goodies available for purchase! Nachos will be $3, drinks are $1, chips are $1, hot dogs are $2, and candy bars are $1.

FINALLY, we will be having the Father/Son Bakeoff during the Pinewood Derby. Bring something fun and yummy to show off and share!
