Pinewood Derby Opening
Posted On: 2020-11-11
Announcer: Our opening ceremony tonight is to show you the use of the colored flags in auto racing!
Colored flags are similar to those used to show their color meaning in an actual race. The checkered flag is made from a white crepe paper sheet using black stripes. All other flags are made of plain crepe paper. Each Scout carries a flag and waves it during his part of the opening.
Cub #1: (Carries Pack Flag) Gentlemen, your attention, please! All cars in the race on the track, now!
Cub #2: (Carries Green Flag) Once around the track and then we will start. Watch that green flag.
Cub #3: (Carries Yellow Flag) All cars running well, looks like we're off to a good start. Whoops! A spinout on the back of the track! Slow down and hold your places!
Cub #4: (Carries Red Flag) Watch out for the spinout - another car is hit - driver on the track. Stop the race! We have a driver on the track!
Cub #5: (Carries Green Flag) The track is all clear - all cars back in racing position. Let's have another start. Watch that flag!
Cub #6: (Carries Den Flag) There is another spinout on the track! That guy hit the wall. Doesn't he know he can't win a race that way?
Cub #7: (Carries a White Flag) Here comes lucky number 2! He is still in first place! Looks like we have a winner!
Cub #8: (Carries Checkered Flag) It's number 2! A checkered flag for the winner. Well, folks, that's our race - now let's get on to the real one!
