Good Morning Pack 3179 Families.  We are a week away from the Pinewood Derby and we need help!  Today from 12-2 pm there is a volunteer meeting at the VFW.  The Pinewood Derby will only be successful if we have adult volunteers on derby day.  Please see the post from Jeff Small for details.  This is the week to finish up painting and preparing you derby car.  All cars must be checked in next Sunday (1/22) in order to be in the race on Monday.  Check in is from 9-1 at the VFW.  Come start your day out with a pancake breakfast with your family.  Breakfast is only $6 for adults and $3 for kids.  Breakfast is at the VFW on 1/22 from 8-11 am.  We need help cooking that morning too.  Please email me at barronjl@att.net to volunteer. 

Pinewood Derby Volunteer meeting Sunday 1/15! WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Posted on Jan 14 2017 - 6:02pm

Hi all,
Hope everyone is hard at work designing and building their Pinewood Derby cars for the big race on 1/23!  A few reminders:

-Volunteer meeting on Sunday, 1/15, at the VFW, from 12-2, at 3801 Market in Ventura.   The Derby cannot happen without volunteers, so WE NEED HELP from the adults.  We need about 20 volunteers the night of the race to make it successful, and right now, we only have about 5 people who have signed up.  No experience necessary.  If you are interested, please contact either of us or come to the volunteer meeting on Sunday.

-Car check in at the VFW from 9-1 at the VFW on Sunday, 1/22.  All cars must be checked in on Sunday.  If this is not possible, please contact us ahead of time.

-Sibling races - As usual, we will allow siblings to race informally at the conclusion of the Scout races.  We will not be checking in these cars in advance, so siblings should just bring theirs on the day of the race.  We do have a few extra unmade cars also.  Please contact Jeff Small if you would like one.

Please watch the website, eblasts and your email for additional emails as we approach the event.  It's one of most exciting Scout events of the year for our Scouts, and we want to make it the best night possible for them.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions.  Thanks everyone!!

Hello Pack 3179 Families,

A couple reminders for the Scouts/parents that are signed up for this week's Pinewood Derby "Shop Nights" at Balboa School.  The teacher (Mr. Fredette) is the only one who can use most of the power tools (sorry, but that's Balboa School's rules).  So...
