Troop 3063 holds an annual Pinewood Derby, starting in 2013.  We are grateful to Pack 557 for hosting us in this endeavor.  It is always a big hit with the girls!  Each grade runs in a heat, with top three finishers in each heat receiving medals.  At the end of the day the top three from each heat run against each other, with the top three overall finishers earning trophies.  Additional trophies may be earned in car-theme categories, determined and announced each year.
