Demolition Derby & Campout
Since our Cub Scouts spend days in the winter building cool cars to race in our Pinwood Derby, we think it's a great idea for them to spend a day in the summer watching cars smash into each other! The ridiculously fun Demolition Derby at Route 66 Speedway holds a special Scout Night each summer and it's a BLAST!
NEW: Camp overnight with special Scout-only activities like scavenger hunts, campfires, driver meet-and-greets and even racecar painting!
We are planning on camping out as a Pack at the track this year on Friday, August 24th (the night before the race) and like to set up our tents up near each other. Last year on Friday night there were a bunch of tuner cars in the parking lot and the drag strip which were pretty cool.
Here is a link to register for the Pack 94 event (campout, activities, race). Please list scout's first name and last initial in comments when signing up. You also need to order tickets via the below link--tickets range from $17-$27 each. This is not a free event.
Here is a link to order the tickets to the race at a discount (discounted rate may only be available until 8/17). They will need a head count to make sure that there are enough supplies for the attendees. The race is bleacher style open seating so we like to know how many seats to save so we can sit together as a group.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the event.
