Official Links
Pony Express District is kind of in a state of 'limbo,' right now. There are actually two sites.. the old site, http://www.ponyexpressscouts.org (which hasn't been updated in a while), and the new site, http://www.utahscouts.org/ponyexpress (which is not yet finished)... which is why I have been using my blog, lately, to share info.

Here are links to the other official Cub Scout websites...
Utah National Parks Council
National Cub Scouts "ScoutSource" home page
Scout Shop online

Pinewood Derby
Here are links to other websites that have ideas and helps for running your Pinewood Derby.

Stands
Here are some ideas for stands that can be given out as trophy bases for the Pinewood Derby cars from scoutingthenet, and instructables, and Pack 479. Here is a pre-built one from Hobbylinc (even if you don't want to buy it, it may give you an idea for building another kind of stand).

Hi Paul,

Do you still need people to sign up for food for roundtable this month (Jan)? I forgot to sign up and there are a few other people from my pack that want to come. What kind of food did you have sign-ups for? Let me know. Thanks!!
