Wiesbaden Cub Scouts cheer on their cars during their annual Pinewood Derby Jan. 26 at the Tony Bass Gym. The scouts from Pack 13 drew designs for their cars, which then were created out of wood at the Arts and Crafts Center. The scouts sanded down their designs, painted them and added extras in hopes of racing to the head of the pack. Besides the races, they also voted on the cars with the best design, and participated in CPR, origami folding, an obstacle course and other activities throughout the day.

Overall pack winners and their average car speed: 1st place – Magnus Schwerd, Tiger Den, 160.8 mph; 2nd place – Ilya Knorr, Bear Den, 160.4 mph; 3rd place – Donovan Rohn, Arrow of Light Den, 159.5 mph.
Den winners and their average car speed: Lion Den: Emmet Loving, 158.2 mph; Tiger Den: Magnus Schwerd, 161.3 mph; Wolf Den: Sebastian Fischbach, 157.7 mph; Bear Den: Ilya Knorr, 160.9 mph; Webelos Den: Tristan Pritchard, 159.3 mph; Arrow of Light Den: Donovan Rohn, 161.1 mph.
