Pinewood Derby

Our Cub Scout days are quickly drawing to a close. Yesterday we participated in our last Pinewood Derby. It should have been our easiest year ever, especially since Connor quickly decided on the same exact design he has done the past 2 years, but somehow it ended up being one of the most challenging years. We had trouble with paint not wanting to dry and wheels that kept going in crooked. Then there were Genna's butterfly wings. We had to clip them down a bit so they would fit underneath the sensor bar on the track. As usual we were putting on the finishing touches, only hours before the weigh in. Despite all the difficulties, everyone was happy with how the races went.

Connor won first place in his Den with his rocket car

Jameson worked really hard on his vintage 7up can car

Genna got the cinder block award for the car that took the longest to get down the track

Ahhh, I like Genna's car best. Who cares how fast it goes? What matters is how it looks!

It is so fun to see all you guys are doing!

Way to go Connor! First place! Loved the vintage 7-up car Jameson.

Genna your car is so pretty and creative. I have never seen a butterfly pinewood car before.

This is the 2nd time I entered this, we'll see if it shows up this time.
