Scouts and their parents from eight packs across town sent their top three qualifying Pinewood Derby racers to the beautiful Camp Seton Scout Reservation on Riversville Road. The Pray building was a cool respite from the heat on Saturday.
The first, second, third and fourth place racers won trophies: Jackson Ertel, Logan Amen, Ned Glenn and Tyler Ernst. There was also a Best in Show award for the best looking car, which went to Jasper Larken, plus a participation trophy for everyone who made it to the championships.
The Best in Show went to Jasper Larken for his white car with his colorful initials and a topping of white pom poms.
Adventure, leadership, service and learning, especially in the outdoors, have remained essential to the Greenwich Scouting experience since its inception in 1912.
Nearly 1,750 local youth participate in programs, such as the Pinewood Derby, run by dedicated volunteers, all of which help prepare local boys and girls for life. With over 20 partnering organizations and Cub Scouting, Scouts BSA, Venturing and Exploring opportunities in Greenwich, Connecticut, there’s never been a better time to join the Scouting community.
