Corporate teams to compete in Pinewood Derby

Southeastern Wisconsin companies are invited to send corporate teams to compete when the Boy Scouts of America, Milwaukee Chapter, hosts its Corporate Pinewood Derby contest on Thursday, June 17, at the Harley-Davidson Museum.
The event will include teams from Milwaukee-area companies competing in a familiar Cub Scout tradition by racing homemade pinewood derby cars down a track.
Corporations already signed up to participate include Harley-Davidson Motor Company, Waukesha Electric Systems Inc, Twin Disc Inc., Patrick Cudahy Inc., Ladish Forging LLC and P&H Mining Equipment Inc. The deadline to participate is Monday, June 14.
“Teams should participate to promote teambuilding in your company and have fun at the same time,” said Katie Clark, fundraising and marketing director for the Boy Scouts. “Where else can you race little cars down a giant track and act like a kid again?”
Awards will be presented in the following categories: fastest car, best of show, best of corporation and best dressed pit crew.
The best of corporation award will be given to the company who designs its car to best represent its company.
A new rookie class was established this year as well, which will provide five pre-cut cars that require only minor decorating and assembly. There will be special awards for the rookie class category. 
Anyone interested can attend the event and enjoy the races, food and networking by purchasing a $20 “pit pass.”
“By attending, individuals can cheer on their favorite car and network with business leaders in our community,” Clark said.
