2011 Pinewood Derby - Pt. 1

Today was my son's last pinewood derby. He's raced each year from Tigers to Bears to Wolves to Webelos 1 and 2. Next year he'll be a Boy Scout, and he'll be helping run things.

Seems like we're always rushing to get the car done. We got the kit last weekend, started Wednesday, and were mounting the wheels at 8:30 this morning. Weigh-in was at 9:00. But it's all good. The car got done, he was happy with it, and it ran OK.

The track:

The 1st race:

My son's car was pretty consistently 2nd or 3rd in each 4-car heat, so we weren't surprised that he didn't place.  But that's fine, the car ran well, he had fun.
