2007 Pinewood Derby

















Joey entered the Ward's Cub Scout Pinewood Derby a few weeks ago and his entry was one of over 20 cars. Other than me sawing the car to Joey's specifications, he did everything else including the paint job, picking the driver, etc. His is the black car with the yellow and white stripes and the lego driver with the sideway's hat.

After racing the car, it was pretty clear that some of the dads had just as much fun (or more) as the kids working on their cars. There were some amazingly fast cars and Joey's didn't quite compare. But, it was a fun experience for all the boys and I was proud of Joey for doing most of this on his own.

Here is a video of one of his races. His car is on the left of the screen.
