My wife is the Committee Chair of our Church's pack and has seen the pack shrink of the last few years as recruiting has not been very successful.
An idea was floated to invite all children from the church to the pinewood derby. It seems like it would make a great recruiting event. Obviously, since you would need to get them a car & provide them with some instructions & rules, you'd need sign ups ahead of time, which would be good for getting contact info for later follow up.
What do you think the pros and cons would be? Any cub scouters with experience doing this very thing?
