Yesterday sure was a great day for Scouting!  Of course, as is today...

The Scouts did an awesome job with their cars!  The cars were all super fast and looked even better.  The judges had a really difficult time with the beauty contests as all the cars looked great.

The new track worked flawlessly.  Well worth all the hard work selling popcorn!

A special thanks to all the parents who helped throughout the day.  Scouts have a great experience in 1417 because we are such a great unit.  We are a great unit because of all the parents who help throughout the year.  Your participation, no matter how small, helps to make the best possible Scouting experience for all of our Scouts.  Thank you!

While we had a lot of parents help out, three in particular earned recognition.  Peter Hortman, Liz and Tim Davis.  Peter took car of researching, procuring, and testing the new track along with all of the setup and race day operations.  Liz headed up the concession stand and made sure that we had all the tasty treats we needed.  Tim continued his perennial role as master of ceremonies doing an awesome job to which 1417 has grown accustomed.

Thank you all again for making this a wonderful and memorable event for all our Scouts!
