Sportsmanship - Pinewood Derby


At the beginning of the Indianapolis 500 -- or any car race -- the announcer says, "Gentlemen, start your engines".  Tonight we will have our Pinewood Derby.  I will ask 13 boys to come forward to help me give you a reminder.

S    Smile, even if you hurt inside.

P    Pardon those parents who may show poor manners.

O    Ooze with enthusiasm for your car and fellow Den members.

R    Respect the feelings of other Cub Scouts.

T    Try your best and

S    Satisfied with yourself.

M    Master the art of self-control.

A    Anger has no place in our meeting.

N    Notice that only one can win.

S    Success is "doing your best" will be present for every Cub Scout.

H    Hush those words of bragging.

I    Insert your congratulations to the winner.

P    Play the derby game for fun.
