First Annual Semi Truck Derby

On Saturday, August 20th, our pack hosted a Council-wide Semi-Truck Pinewood Derby. We had an absolute BLAST!
There were Door prizes, raffle prizes, eats and more eats, Some fine juggling entertainment, and a couple yoyos to round out the show! Oh, and not to mention the greatest truck rally EVER!!

The Southaven Fire Department came out, with Sparky the Fire Dog, and a robotic Fire Hydrant. There is a video below of them both.

NOTE: The video clips below require a movie player that can play .MOV files. The only one I know of is Quicktime, which you can download for free by visiting simply by clicking their logo below.
