    Boys Scouts offer Pinewood Derby to the community By Ronald Arrellin Jr. Apr 1, 2018 Updated Apr 1, 2018 SAFFORD — On your mark . . . get set . . . go! It was high-speed fun at the Safford Stake Center on Saturday, March 24, when the annual Pinewood Derby was opened to the public. Local Boy Scouts and members of the public made cars out of pine wood that had to meet certain criteria — most notably weight — in order to participate in racing. Andrew Knudsen, district executive of the Eastern Service Area, who headed this event, stated on the Boy Scouts of America Coronado District: Grand Canyon Council: Arizona Facebook page, “What an amazing Scout District Championship and community Pinewood Derby this past weekend. It was full of music, food, science and fun. We had 72 registered scouts (and) 64 registered nonscouts (community friends), including 30 female racers.” The Facebook post also included results for the event. The fastest Tiger Scout (7 years old) was Zeth Jones, the Wolf champion (8 years old) was Brigham Hawkins, the Bear champion (9 years old) was Trayven Richardson, and the Webelos champion was Landon Robbins. Overall fastest Cub Scout was Landon Robbins with an average speed of 188 miles per hour. “Our community youth event was won by Hamilton Bolen, and the adult version was won by his sister, Heidi. Then at the race-off, Heidi edged out the win with a difference of only 0.001 seconds and an average speed of 189 miles per hour,” Knudsen said.

    The Prescott Pickleball Association is seeking assistance from and Eagle Scout looking for a project. Eight courts were built last year at Pioneer Park as a joint public/private venture and now we are looking to inprove the hardscape. Behind four courts is an eroding hillside and separates the courts from a hiking trail. In heavy rain, the hillside mud flows onto the courts creating a mess. We are looking to terrace the hillside with landscaping rock into three or four level sections to provide seating for patrons and spectators during tournaments. The span across the back courts is about 100' long. Thank you in advance for considering this project. Kevin Costa Prescott Pickleball Association, Vice President
