Council Pinewood Derby 2020

This year, many Cub Scout Packs were not able to conduct Pinewood Derby races because of the pandemic.

The Northern Lights Council did something different to give Cub Scouts the chance to see their cars race! We conducted a Council Pinewood Derby that was broadcast over the internet.

You can watch the races below, which were broadcast on Facebook July 4, 2020.
