Pinewood Derby Rule reminder

Just a reminder.  One of the Pinewood Derby rules is that all 4 wheels need to touch the track.  It is not allowed to intentionally set your wheels up so that only 3 of the 4 wheels are touching.
Some Pinewood Derby websites recommend trying to do this, but it is not in fair play as there is 25% less friction.  Now the placement of the axels and wheels is not perfect but if the inspector notices a wheel is consistently not touching the ground you will be asked to fix it prior to the race.
Please do your best, we do not want unhappy scouts with a disqualified car.
Thanks!

Pack Meeting Monday 1/26

Reminder Pack meeting this Monday.
The Wolf Den will be leading the meeting.  Go Wolves!!
Following advancement we will assemble "Jared Boxes" which are gift boxes that we will send to children admitted at Hershey Medical Center Cancer Center.
Your Den leader should have contacted you about bringing something to contribute to the Jared Boxes, if you have not heard please contact your Den leader to find out how you can help.
We also will review two fund raising opportunities.  These will help the pack keep dues low for next year as well as help us contribute to other community service projects this spring.
The first is the "Salt and Pepper fund raiser night"  Click here for more details.

The second will be a sub sale through Clyde Weaver.  We will sell sub tickets which can be redeemed at anytime at a Clyde Weaver for a fresh made sub.  We will have a 2 week window to sell the tickets.

For each $6 ticket sold the scout will have $2.00 added to their scout account to be used for dues or camp and the Pack will receive 50 cents which we will use for community service projects or other Pack expenses.

All unsold tickets must be returned to the Pack at the end of the 2 weeks.
At this Monday's Pack meeting we will have  a sign up station where you can tell us your sales goal (how many tickets you plan to sell) which will help us determine how many tickets to have made by Clyde Weaver for us.

So look for the Sub Sale sign up and think about how many tickets you plan to sell.

Thanks for your support!
