Tomahawk Cub Scouts hold annual Pinewood Derby Race, Cake Bake-Off
For the Tomahawk Leader
TOMAHAWK – Cub Scout Pack 548 of Tomahawk held its annual Pinewood Derby Race and Cake Bake-Off at the Wisconsin National Guard Armory in Tomahawk last month.
Forrest Van Asten, one the leaders of the Cub Scouts, explained that each scout built their own derby car for the races, which were held on a 40-foot track with electronic timers.
“We also had a siblings race category and adult leaders race category so that everyone could participate,” Van Asten stated.
George Van Asten had the fastest car in the pack, followed by Jonathan Lucas and Jonah Raith. Ayla Lobermeier’s derby car earned Best in Show honors.
Along with the derby, the Cub Scouts also held their annual Cake Bake-Off, which allowed those in attendance to enjoy the cakes during the races.
Cherie from Sweet Sensations served as the special guest cake judge in the competition. Gabe Lobermeier ultimately took home the Best in Show award in the Cake Bake-Off.
“Pack 548 would like to thank 1st SGT Westphal of the Wisconsin Army National Guard for hosting us at the Armory and for serving as our guest judge in the derby car paint job competition,” VanAsten said.
