2008 Springfield Sections Pinewood Derby Race Report and Pictures.
Thank you to all who attended and worked to make the Springfield Sectional
Pinewood Derby the best PWD yet. We had a great turnout for the
Springfield North and South Combined Sectional Pinewood Derby. I
estimate that there were 500 rangers and spectators. The gym at Nixa
Assembly was full. We had special activities along with the race to
keep the boys busy when they weren't racing. A paint ball target shoot was
set up outside and we had 1300 rounds of ammo shot.
There was a "Meet the Pastor" area set up for boys and girls to talk to
pastor Charles Bowser or Jim Dougherty.
At the "Meet the Pastor" 81 boys and 5 girls were talked to and prayed with.
3 boys prayed the sinner's prayer for the first time. Praise the Lord!!!!
Glory to God!!!
All of the guests to "Meet the Pastor" received a coupon to shoot the dart
gun. The dart gun booth was set up in the storage area for safety and the
participants wore safety glasses. At the dart gun booth the Rangers could
shoot darts from the air rifle and if they hit a target they received a
sucker or candy. This was very popular.
We also had an Air Ranger display of about 10 RC planes and helicopters.
The display was brought by Bob Bender and Kirk Watson from Central AOG Air
Rangers program. They also had an RC flight simulator that the boys could
try. The flight simulator was projected on the wall for spectators to see.
Nixa Assembly of God Rangers provided a great concession stand with a large
selection of lunch entrees. We also had a challenge track set up for
boys to challenge their friends to a race. We had about 48 racers make
challenges. Free beverage coupon was given to all boys in class B
uniforms. 21 coupons given out. There were 102 cars entered from the
South Section and 170 cars entered from the North Section. If you
