After some research, the Group Committee decided to purchase a track instead of building one – many of the leaders are very busy and it was determined this would be both cost effective and easier for all involved. That said, it will also be a track that lasts a long time – we have purchased a track made of extruded aluminum, along with an electronic finish line – a purchase that should give the 3rd Ottawa decades of racing excitement.
In February, 2013 a former Cub and Scout, Eric Welch, along with Tim (his Dad and Group Commissioner) built a pine and birch carrying case for the track and all of its components.
Curious? For parents and youth in the 3rd, join us at our pot luck on Feb. 20 and check out the new track!
