Hermon Cub Scout Pack 25 held its Pinewood Derby on Feb. 7 at Hermon Baptist Church. Cub Scouts designed, shaped, decorated and fine-tuned their cars to race and “do your best.” With the derby officiated by Bear Den Leader Kevin Hartford and Pastor Matt Bentley, cars were judged in several categories — Most Fuel Efficient, Most Patriotic, Scoutiest, Best Paint Job and Most Creative. Each car raced four heats, with times recorded and averaged. Winning for the fastest cars were (from left) Wolf Kent Raymond, first; Bear Matt Sforza, second; Tiger Elias Pagurko, third; and (not pictured) Wolf Nathan Raymond, runner up. The speediest cars and their racers will compete in the Katahdin Area Council’s District Championships at the Scout Skill Show on Saturday, March 28, at the Airport Mall in Bangor.
