On February first, 2014 Pack One Warwick had the Pinewood Derby. It had the best food like donuts, pizza, nachos, hotdogs, and chili. Another derby favorite that cannot be forgotten is Cub Scout popcorn!
There were all sorts of cars. One looked like a ruler and another one looked like a penguin with fuzzy pink earmuffs and a scarf. One car was an army tank and another was a C7. Some cars were sports themed and there was even a brownie troop car from one of the siblings. There was even a car that was a man and another that was a pig. Some of the cars are pictured here.
Each den had people to race and they even had a division for the siblings and adults to race. Boy scouts were there to judge in categories like most original, best design and best paint job. It was a lot of fun!
Reminder our PInewood derby will be starting at 8am on Saturday February 1st. We will have weigh-in and registration this Thursday night. We will be taking pictures of your scout for the race software.
We’re still looking for some help with the pit crew, check-in and kitchen staff as well as volunteers to help setup the track on Friday night at 7pm at the church.
If you have not cut out your car and need help, please contact Cubmaster Ed this week. Time is running out, don’t miss the chance to race in the derby!

The Pack 1 Warwick Wolf Den did completed a “Good Turn” last Thursday by writing Christmas Cards to our Military Heroes abroad. Collectively, the Den completed 94 Christmas Cards with such messages as “Stay Safe this Christmas”, and “Thanks for your Heroism”. Great Job Boys!
The Pack 1 Warwick Wolf Den got a tour of the Historic Aldrich Mansion on Saturday November 2nd. They boys were excited to hear all about all of the former US Presidents who ate in the Dining room of the mansion with the Aldrich Family! The best part of the tour for the boys… rolling down the Gigantic Hill on the Back Lawn!
It is with great pleasure that I inform you that our Webelos have been invited to be special guests at the Warwick City Council Meeting on Monday, March 11, 2013. We will be asked to lead the Pledge of Allegiance at the beginning of the meeting and the City Council will recognize the scouts for obtaining the Rank of Webelos. This will be a Class A event. Please plan on meeting in the foyer of Warwick City Hall at 6:30 pm so we can enter the Council Chambers as a group. Again, this is a great honor and a big thank you goes out to Mr. Ed Ladouceur, Councilman Ward 5 for arranging this in your son’s honor. Add this event to your calendar here.
