District Soap Box Derby 2001
After nearly a decade absence, the Burlington District Scouting Soap Box Derby returned on Saturday May 5, 2001. The Derby was held on the grounds of Kelso Conservation Area in Milton. 17 home-made vehicles from 9 Scouting groups have entered this year's event. Groups built up their own vehicles around a common wheel and steering system supplied through the District. Participants were also required to wear helmets and have restraint systems on their "racers".
Using the kits supplied through the District, the Pack (and Mr. Hudson & Rann) spent a few nights over the spring building our very own Soap Box racer. Nearly the whole Pack took part in the race, and in the weekend camp surrounding it. 15th was the only Pack that camped for the whole weekend! In addition to our Kim, we also had Scout Bryan and Scouter Bill join us as guests for the weekend
