The Dell Rapids Boy Scouts Pack 53 held their annual Pinewood Derby race on Saturday, March 24th, at the Dell Rapids Elementary School. Den members from the Lions, Tigers, Wolves, Bears, and Webelos once again spent time creating their Pinewood Derby cards for the big race. Family members were also once again able to enter a race with the specially created cars in the open class division. The Boy Scouts again invited the Girl Scouts to build cars and race as part of the event on Saturday.
Four places were given to the Boy Scout division and three places were given to the Girl Scouts. Best of show awards were also given to a car from each den and the Girl Scout division. There was also an overall best of show winner.
The top three Boy Scout place winners advanced to race their cars at the Scout-O-Rama in Sioux Falls.
Behr Peckenpaugh placed first, Dylan Aker was second, Orran O’Meara placed third, and Liam Zellmer was fourth in the Boy Scout division.
