2021 Huguenot Trail District Pinewood Derby Results!

Boogity Boogity Boogity!!! We went racing! 

The 2021 Huguenot Trail District Pinewood Derby was held this morning at Bethel Baptist Church, Midlothian. You may watch the recorded race  HERE and see how your fellow scouts did! The race “Final Standings” and “Individual Rank Race Standings” are listed below.

We want to thank Chesterfield Autoparts for their sponsorship allowing us to purchase patches and trophies; Bethel Baptist for the generous use of their facilities, the leaders of Pack 876 (Chris, Jennifer and Brian) for the track usage, computers and time, and District volunteer Mike Davis for leading us in another Pinewood Derby!

Lastly, we need to thank all the cub scouts and their families for  trusting us with your treasured cars. It was very obvious to all race officials the amount of energy and hard work that went into the design and building of your cars!

The order for patches and trophies will be placed on Monday and we will organize the distribution when the order is received. We appreciate your patience as we do things a little differently this year with trophies. (Not knowing if Packs would participate in the District race made race officials cautious with spending money and the decision was made to place a post-race order.)

Huguenot Trail Spring Scavenger Hunt!

Think you know where you live? Join the scouting community of all ranks and ages as we have fun in the District and have our own Amazing Race!
This event starts today 5 February, 2021 and will run through 4 March, 2021.
Get out and explore where you live!!!

Scavenger Hunt rules:

  • You may internet search for help while hunting, however, you must take a picture of yourself in front of each location, building or historical marker.

  •  Please be respectful of the property you are visiting and follow the rules of Leave No Trace.

  • Parents of Cubs, give your Cubs a map and have them use those map skills to follow your route. It would cut down on your driving and help your Cub’s attention span if you try to solve the clues before heading out. Have your Cubs help you search the internet and talk them through the clue process.

  • When you have completed the hunt, send your pictures and locations along with your name and mailing address in a message to the Huguenot Trail Facebook page. Your completion certificate and patch will be snail-mailed to you. (Due to limited amount of supply, vintage patches are reserved for scouts only)
