On Saturday April 6th the Fishawack District held their annual Pinewood Derby Championship at Alfred Vail School in Morris Township. The competition was conducted by age groups with six champions crowned. A total of 51 Scouts from 13 packs participated. Fishawack district covers eastern Morris county and racers came from every town between Butler and Morristown.
Each year, every Cub Scout builds a Pinewood Derby car starting with a block of wood and a simple set of wheels and axles. The Scout whittles or sands the car into whatever shape they choose.
Winners received a trophy and are eligible to compete in the Pinewood Derby World Championship to be held in New York City on June 30th.
