Blennerhassett District PWD (Feb 4, 2017)


Blennerhassett District Pinewood Derby 2017
February 4th, 2017
Wayside United Methodist Church
3001 Grand Central Ave.
Vienna, WV 26105

It’s almost time for the 2017 Blennerhassett District Pinewood Derby!
More ways to Win this year, means More FUN!!

This is a Race you don’t want to miss.
We would like to invite Scouts from any District to come and compete in the BDPWD.

Design Awards
Each year we present 5 design awards to the top Pinewood Derby Cars.
Our guest judges look over every car as it is registered and choose the the best ones for the following awards:
1. Most Patriotic Pinewood Derby Race Car
2. Best Display of Scout Spirit by Racer or Race Car
3. Most Realistic Designed Pinewood Derby Race Car
4. Best Pinewood Derby Race Car Overall Paint Job
5. Most Unusual Pinewood Derby Race Car
So if Looks are more your thing than Speed, this is your race!

Scout Division
Every year we pull together 5 race tracks in the Wayside United Methodist Gym including a 4 Lane Aluminum track for the finals. Each rank races together on a separate track. That means your Scout is competing against Scout the same age and skill level. Each track runs a double elimination race all at the same time. We will present a Racing Medal to the top 4 racers in each rank.

Finals Race
Then we advance the top 4 from each rank to the finals.
That means 20 scouts participate in a 4 Lane wide Finals Race that is run by the best time.

Open Class
We also hold an Open Class Division Race for any siblings, parents, leaders, to participate in. It is a no hold barred cage match between some of the craziest Derby Cars you will ever see.

Racing Fee is $5.00 per racer to be collected at the door on race day.
Registration will be open at 9:00am.
Opening Ceremonies will begin at 10:00am sharp.
See ya at the Track!

2016 Popcorn Sale

It’s that time of year again….TO SELL POPCORN!!!

If you have questions, contact your District Executive or Popcorn Kernel

Campmaster’s Popcorn is made exclusively for sale by the Boy Scouts of America units. It’s our largest annual fundraiser that runs mid-September through November.

This annual council-wide fundraiser assists local units in raising money for summer resident or day camps, adventures, supplies, registration fees, and advancement badges. Monies raised at the council level contribute to valuable programs such as Scout Reach, a program that provides support to individuals, training volunteers to be better Scouts, and sustaining camp facilities.

Purchasing popcorn outside of a retail store (show-and-sell) or ordering popcorn (take-order), is the easiest way to help units raise money. Over 70% of all sales dollars remain here to support our Scouts at the council and the unit level.

So, do your part, get out there and SELL!! SELL!! SELL!!
