Edgewater Pack 815 Cub Scouts Pinewood Derby
The Pack 815 Edgewater Cub Scouts recently held their annual pinewood derby and chili cook-off at Londontown Community Hall. Over 40 Cub Scouts from first grade Tigers to fifth grade Webelos II and siblings built and raced a car. The scouts and siblings worked on their cars for several weeks prior to the race carving a block of wood, painting, and attaching wheels. The first place winner was Webelos II Joey Murphy. Joey Murphy designed and built a pink "Race for the Cure" car and got sponsors to donate money for every race his car won. He also donated part of his allowance money for each race his car won and raised a few hundred dollars that he donated to cancer research. Several people entered in a pot of chili for chili cook-off contest and Boy Scout Troop 815 entered a pot of chili they cooked in a dutch oven over an open pit fire.
