Pinewood Derby Sponsors Needed


Boy Scout Troop 354 is having its annual business class Pinewood Derby.

Any business or individual interested in entering may obtain a car from Barry Standifird or Mike McWilliams. Kits are now available, accompanied by information on acceptable dimensions and the rules.

The price of entry is $25. "Pit Day" is from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 24 at the cafeteria at Julia Randall Elementary School. At that time participants can receive assistance and advice on preparing the car for the race.

The race will be Saturday, March 3 at Mount Cross Lutheran Church, 601 E. Highway 260, just west of the Giant gas station.

Inspections start at noon, with the races beginning at 1 p.m.

The business class races will be followed by an open class race. The proceeds help pay for the troop's activities, which can be supplemented by donations dropped at Standifird's office, 814 N. Beeline, or given to McWilliams.

To contact Standifird, call (928) 474-0181, McWilliams can be reached at (928) 474-3784.
