1st Annual Pinewood Derby

Can you design and build a Pinewood derby car that will beat "The Wright Stuff?"  No, I don't think you can. 

Prove me wrong!  I'm willing to put my money where my mouth is.  The finest Ice Cream establishment in Delta Township is Twisters. Anyone who beats me gets their choice of delicious frozen treat - paid for by your friendly neighborhood Scoutmaster!  

Derby kits will be provided.  Pack 386 Pinewood rules apply, and will be provided to all participants. 
When? Thursday, April 276:00 pm
Where? Elmwood Elementary Gym.

Mackinac 2016 Evaluation / Facebook

Congratulations to everyone on a successful week. Our final evaluation is in, and we will be back next year! Of particular highlight is a 4+ (on a scale of 1 - 4 rating) for our youth leadership! Issues brought up in midweek were improved, and all our scores improved. We still have some areas to improve on that will be addressed in our training sessions in the spring. I personally was so proud of all the extra efforts the boys put in - including extra "mini shifts" to make sure that the program in the Fort went off without a hitch! We got great compliments from the rifle team.

Missing socks?  Mr. Devito has some left behind laundry.  (The names are unreadable.)  If you have Facebook, request to join our "Troop 111 Mackinac Island Governor's Honor Guard" page.  We have the lost and found, along with shared photos!
