Cassadaga Cub Scouts Hold Pinewood Derby

CASSADAGA – Cub Scout Pack 219 in Cassadaga recently held its annual Pinewood Derby contest at the village fire hall.

Scouts had to carve a block of wood into a car, add wheels, put weights on it, paint it and decorate it.

A total of 19 boys participated. There were four individual heats for the Tigers, Wolves, Bears and Webelos. Winners of each den then raced one another to find out who would become the overall pack winner.

Coming in first place was Colden Burwick (Wolf). The second-place winner was Easton Burwick (Tiger). Third-place winner was Gavin Blake (Bear). The fourth-place winner was Jared Dorman (Webelos).

Tammy Wichlacz with the Cassadaga Valley Parent Teacher Organization and John Kwietniewski, Sinclairville Elementary principal, served as the judges.
