MOVE OVER, Richard Petty, the Cub Scouts from Pack 663 are looking to take the checkered flag.

The boys gathered late last month to race homemade cars in their annual Pine Wood Derby. Scouts received car kits in a December pack party and worked with their parents to assemble, customize and paint their cars, vying to win awards for fastest car and best design.

The winners from each den:

* Tigers: Adam Geineder, fastest, and David Andrews, best design.

* Wolves: Trey Ranken, fastest, and Adam Batchelor, best design.

L * Bears: Miles Cosner, fastest, and Doug Quinn, best design.

* Webelos I/I: Andrew Carter, fastest, and Ian Hines, best design.

* Webelos I/II: Mark Geineder, fastest, and Chris Geldmacher, best design.

* Webelos II: Jeffrey Fonteneau, fastest, and Brian LaAsmar, best design.

A special award was given to Patrick Mullen, a member of Webelos II, for having developed the most creative design.

Fastest in Pack honors went to Mark Geineder, first place; Adam Geineder, second place; and Trey Ranken, third.

This month, Pack 663 will be going ice skating at Piney Orchard. On Feb. 17, the annual Blue and Gold will be held at the American Legion Post 276 home on Quarterfield Road. The post sponsors Pack 663.
