Pinewood Derby, Part 2

You may remember, back in January, I posted about my son's car winning the Pinewood dderby (for the wolfs in Pack 34). Yesterday was the district finals, where the top 3 from each Pack (in each division) gather to determine the "real' winners...

There were 54 cars in the Bear Cub class, each car ran 3 heats, with the winners ranked based on average time. I don't know exactly where we placed, but it wasn't in the top-3 (since he didn't get a trophy)... Hopefully they'll post the complete results in a day or 2. His goal was to do better than 37th, which is where he placed 2 years ago, when he also made the finals. Seemed like a good target to me...


Above is his #7 Steeler car, in one of the heat races. They were all pretty close!

Well, I was hoping he would take 1st but it's an accomplishment just to make it that far! Great photos!
