Pinewood Derby

Today our Cub Scout Pack held their annual Pinewood Derby race! They had a great time!! Our boys worked hard on their cars. Surprisingly our younger son's tank was faster than the bullet car that our oldest built. That was hard for big brother to take, but he was good about it. One of the other boys built a car that beat all comers...

For those of you who aren't familiar with Pinewood Derby: Each of the boys is given a small block of wood, metal nails for axles and little plastic wheels. They turn these into amazing little cars, some of which are quite fast and others which look really good! Then, they bring them to the races and through a process of elimination it is determined which car is the fastest.
