Traditions are a great way to help scouts and parents bond and at the heart of 146's culture. You can go to our Traditions page to get a full listing of our more notable traditions.
Troop 146, a scouting group in West Hartford, CT, is a diverse and inclusive community where scouts educate scouts through applied learning and fun activities, while building character and preparing leaders for today and the future. It's a place that is committed to one and other's achievement and expanding opportunities.

Not your typical derby. Steeped in a tradition since 1949, Scouts make a sledge (sled-like equipment transport) and race through a course that has stations where patrols are tested on their Scoutcraft skills and their leadership abilities, earning points towards a total score. The troop with the highest score wins the derby!
