1st Annual Pinewood Derby

posted Apr 12, 2017, 5:39 PM by Jango Nuts   [ updated May 15, 2017, 7:29 AM by Alan Wright ]


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.
BE THERE!

The application for the Honor Guard is now available!  Click on "Application & Information" under "Mackinac Information" in the menu.  Please note - all applications must be made electronically this year and there are different applications for new and returning Scouts.

We are working to complete the practice calendar and it will be sent out in an information packet to all applicants via e-mail.  All practices will be on weekends this year (with the exception of the Final Inspection/Gear Drop off meeting)

Mackinac 2016 Evaluation / Facebook

posted Aug 8, 2016, 6:53 AM by Alan Wright   [ updated Apr 11, 2017, 9:10 AM by Troop 111 ]

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!
