Two Pack 660 Cub Scouts do well in Pinewood Derby

Monday, December 18, 2017 0 Comments

Every year the Cub Scouts of northwest Miami-Dade compete in a generations-old tradition, the Pinewood Derby. Each Cub Scout, grades 1 through 5, has the opportunity to turn blocks of wood and wheels into their own race car. 

The Derby was hosted this year at Hialeah High and over 100 cars were entered. Two Cub Scouts from Pack 660, chartered to Miami Lakes United Methodist Church and affiliated with Miami Lakes K-8 Center, achieved their goals. 

Aidan Schwinghammer’s “Cubstar,” designed to honor Scouting, won first place in the largest racing division, the “Webelos Division” and earned him third place overall. 

Good friend, classmate and fellow Webelo Wilson Oliva’s car won third place in the “Best of Show” category for its unique Lego-inspired spaceship look.

Pack 660 meets every Thursday at Miami Lakes United Methodist Church from 7 to 8 p.m. and all boys in grades 1 to 5 are invited to participate. For more information, contact Cub Master Sean Schwinghammer at 305-798-3724.
