The Pinewood Derby is an annual Cub Scout tradition where scouts — and members from the community — come together and race cars they built themselves on a track.
This year, the Pinewood Derby was held on Sunday, Feb. 24. Twenty-four Cub Scouts and members from the community participated.
“We bought a small track this year for our Pack,” said Melissa Rupert. “It has a laser timing system and works great.”

There were many donations and as well as a raffle, Rupert said.
“The kids loved it,” she said.
Among those who donated to the event were Vic and Sheryl Alexander, Krull’s Market, Reptile Gardens, Rushmore Tramway Adventures, Big Thunder Gold Mine, Black Hills Central Railroad 1880 Train, Forest Recreation Management, David Holmgren and Jesus Roman, Andi Bauer and Rush Adventure Park, the Turner family and the Boys and Girls Club.
