Pack 117 Takes Gold At District!


Wyatt’s “Wolf Fang”, Adam’s “Red Lightning”, and Isaac’s “Baconator” represented Pack 117 in the Jamboree District Pinewood Derby last Saturday. It was an all-day event held at the Chapel Hills Mall, where the fastest cars from all of the packs in Northern Colorado Springs, Black Forest, Monument, and in rural Northern El Paso County compete. All three of our Scouts’ cars did great, and we had tons of fun. We’ll know exactly where they placed when our council releases their newsletter next month. The Baconator stole the online casino show; it earned the fastest track time of the day, a First Place trophy for the District Bears den, and then went on to take a First Place trophy in the Grand Championship. Go, Bacon!!!


The Jamboree District introduced the Akela Race this year. Similar to our “Demolition Class”, this race is geared online casino towards adults, and has minimal restrictions – powered cars are encouraged. A CO2-propelled car was registered, but unfortunately had to cancel at the last minute. Mr. Otis represented Pack 117 with his fan car, and raced “Frankencar”, a motorized Pinewood Derby. It was a tight race, but in the end, 117 came out on top. Both cars drew a crowd, and everyone got a huge kick out of the event.

Congratulations to Wyatt, Adam, and Isaac, and we thank them for representing our pack. Click here for more photos.
