Cub Scouts paint, sand their way to derby prizes


March 28, 1995|By NATALIE HARVEY

It doesn't take a computer to figure that 68 Cub Scouts and 28 Pack leaders add up to great experiences for Cub Scout Pack 692.

The boys carved, sanded and painted their entries for the Annual Pinewood Derby this month with winning results.

Wolf Pack's Mark Gravdahl, Christopher Morgan and Scott Davis placed first, second and third.

Bear Pack's John Caldwell, Seth Fanaroff and Andrew White tied for first; with second and third place to Joey Ourand and Robert Ricketts.

Webelos Matthew Kosiba, Tom Morrison and Frank Clarkson earned first, second and third place trophies. All competitors received certificates and ribbons.

Den Leader Paul Caldwell organized the three nights of racing.

Also, den Leader Kem White took the Pack and their families trip to Cunningham Falls State Park in Thurmont to learn about the maple syrup process.

Rick MacInnes is cubmaster and Mike Derby is committee chairman for the pack, which meets at Waterloo Elementary School. It is sponsored by Glen Mar United Methodist Church of Ellicott City.

Congratulations to all.
