Pack 811 Go Karts Race to Victory!



Pack 811 Go Karts Race to Victory!
Saturday’s gray skies and threatening clouds weren’t enough to keep Pack 811 families from enjoying a thrilling day at the races!  Nestled in the charming North Hills area of Brea with the sounds of cheers and applause from fans of every age, Pack 811 Scouts zoomed down the raceway on Oakcrest Avenue, powered only by eagerness, determination, and gravity.   The Go Karts, hand built by Scouts and their parent pit crews, survived the rugged asphalt course and earned each of their drivers a place in the annals of pack race history. The race would not have been possible without the kindness of the friendly residents Oakcrest Avenue.  A special thank you goes to Vicky and David Ladjevic for obtaining permission from their neighbors to make use of their street for the day.    An event such as this is never possible without the effort of many helpful volunteers, including a few special siblings (Matthew R., Bradon H., Alizea H.) who hauled weights and go-karts up the hill dozens of times!  The Pack would also like to thank all of the parents who assisted with set-up, clean-up and hauling of materials for the event. Nineteen teams competed for design awards.  The...

Pack 811 Pinewood Derby Results



Pack 811 Pinewood Derby Results
The pack's annual Pinewood Derby was held a few weeks ago and it was yet another opportunity for our boys and scouting families to have fun and do their best.  Over 60 cars handcrafted by Scouts, siblings, and "big kids", raced down the shiny track, and the 8 fastest competed in a final champion round.  Almost all races were very close, with only small fractions of seconds separating the champions from the rest of the pack.  While a few boys walked away with metals and ribbons, all scouts were victorious in demonstrating their Scout Spirit. Once again our Scouts came up with some truly creative designs for their vehicles. The design winners for each category, as voted on by those who attended, are: Best Paint Job: Trent E., Keagan C., Cruz P. Best Scouting Theme: Joseph T., Collin H., Noah G. Fastest Looking: Christopher S., Adrian L., Hunter T.  Best Use of Stickers: Parker M., Ryan S., William J. Scariest Looking: Adam D., Sebastian S., CJ T.
