Cub Scout (Balsa Wood) Race Night

Martin with our winners
Taxal Cubs held their heats of the District Balsa Wood racing tonight and what an exciting night of entertainment it was. Martin Berriman, from 1st Chinley, has been organising the event for months and he turned up on the night with his purpose build track with timing gates to officiate.

Each of the Cubs got to race their home-made cars 3 times against other competitors. The 6 fastest then moved forward to the semi-final with the top 3 qualifying for a spot in the District finals.

There were many cheers, and a few tears, but eventually we had our three champions. There were no losers tonight though, everyone had fantastic fun.

Many, many thanks to Martin. See you at the finals in a few weeks!
