Good Morning Scouters!

Hopefully everyone's PWD cars are coming along.  Only 9 days left!  I can't wait to see the creations this year.

Just a reminder, we will be having a Weights and Wheels Workshop tomorrow night.  6:30pm @ the Legion Hall.  We will focus on where to put weight, and how to work on the wheels and axles to get more speed!  Please bring your own weight.  You can use anything you want for weight.  You can buy weights at hobby stores, or use coins, metal rod, etc

We will have some tools available so you can install the weights if there is time.  We will also have the "Official Scale", so you can check your cars.

If you are still at a loss as to how to even get started, come to the workshop.  We won't have the tools needed, but we can at least talk you through it.

Please Note:  We assign car #'s!  I will post the official car number list on the website this weekend.  If you want to put a number on your car (not required), only put your assigned number.  Please put it, at minimum, on the top of the car.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.  Better to be sure, than to be disqualified from earning a trophy.

Your Cubmaster,
