NEWINGTON – An annual competition of skill, luck, sportsmanship and craftsmanship took place the last weekend of February.
Cub Scout Pack 322’s Pinewood Derby was hosted by Grace Episcopal Church, 124 Maple Hill Ave., where the pack meets for its weekly meetings Mondays at 6 p.m.
The pack is made up of both boys and girls. Members and their parents worked together to build 15 different race cars before the event. They tested their speed and capability on a special track during the derby.
Coming out on top was Webelos member Aiden Krafthofer, who took home the First Place and Overall Winner trophies for his derby performance. Trophies were also presented to the child who won First Place out of his or her den. These included Braxton Wiley, from the Lion Den; Victoria Kirian, Wolf Den; Jaiden Munson, Bear Den; and Xavier Grayson, Webelos 2 Den.
Cub Scout Pack 322 is always welcoming new members. Contact Pack leaders on Facebook, at Newington Cub Scouts, Pack 322 or @NewingtonScouting. The pack is affiliated with Boy Scout Troop 355.
Cub Scout Pack 347 is currently preparing for its Pinewood Derby, set for this Saturday, March 9.
