As a dad, my biggest fear going into the pinewood derby was that my son would end up “a loser”... That his car wouldn’t do well, or not even make it down the track… But it turns out I shouldn’t have worried. In 8 heat races he had 6 wins and 2 seconds, to place 3rd overall (out of 17 Tiger Scouts). Phew! Of course, the top four in each Pack move on to “districts”, so we’ll get to do it all again in a month.
Coming in for a win!
