HomeTowne Auto Repair & Tire sponsors Family Shoot Out fundraiser

In Boy Scouts, Community Involvement, Quail & Upland Wildlife Federation, Uncategorized by HomeTowne Auto Repair & Tire

Last weekend, Hometowne Auto Repair & Tire was one of the sponsors for the Quail & Upland Wildlife Federation’s family shoot out fundraiser in Fredericksburg.

More than 77 people attended the fundraiser, doubling last year’s numbers.

According to Jerry Saggers, 80 percent of the shoot out fundraiser participants were related to the Boy Scouts organization.

24 of the participants took part in the skeet and trap shooting portion of the day.

“One of the winners of a big prize was a girl – probably about 8-years old. She won the top gun shoot of .22 and bebe gun shooting,” said Saggers.

Many of the Boy Scouts we helped sponsor at the fundraiser were able to begin work on their rifle shooting merit badge.

“Nobody got a [merit] badge, they got partials, because we didn’t have time to do the whole entire merit badge – there are two parts to it. One is the classroom part, the otheShoot out fundraiser participants.r one is the hands on shooting portion of it,” Saggers commented.

The Quail & Upland Wildlife Federation was able to raise $4,500 at the event, which they will use for their programs.

“The money’s going to be used for two purposes…one is for habitat resource projects, and the other is for our youth and outreach program,” said Saggers.

Fun with Pinewood Derby

In Boy Scouts, Community Involvement, Pinewood Derby by HomeTowne Auto Repair & Tire

ST Billingsley with chart on white board.Our mechanics love a challenge and building their own race car out of a block of wood and wheels was definitely a challenge. But the challenge did not stop there. Steve’s Auto Repair and Tire challenged their neighbor HomeTowne Auto Repair and Tire to a mostly friendly race. HomeTowne, being the newer of the two, accepted the challenge. The winner of the special friends and family pinewood derby race would win bragging rights, a trophy (albeit a 2013 one) and a free lunch from the owner, S.T. Billingsley, provided they could beat his race car’s time.

Pinewood derby kit.Each store was given two pinewood derby kits containing the block of wood, axels, and small wheels. Even Steve’s marketing director, Margo, got in on the action determined to create a pink car that would at least not come in last.

What ensued was at times a little less then friendly competition, but high on entertainment value and a lot of fun for all involved in supporting the Boy Scouts. We also learned that some of the technicians may be stolen away by Hollywood if we are not careful, judging by the videos hitting YouTube on both their respective pages.

The friends and family race will be held on January 23rd, so while we still don’t know who the winner will be- what we do know is that excitement is running high as is involvement and support for local Boy Scout troop 1189 here in the Montclair Woodbridge area.

We have put together a behind the scenes look.

How it all ends…

We want to thank Cub Scout Pack 1189 from Montclair Virginia for allowing us to sponsor their pinewood derby this year at John F Pattie elementary school in Dumfries, VA and a thank you to Aromas Pizza on Kevin Walker Drive right off Waterway Drive in Montclair.

Take a look at our wrap up video and see who came out on top. You might be surprised.

Thank you again hope to see you next year…
