Pinewood Derby

Our Cub Scout Pinewood Derby was held Sunday night. J built his own car to race against his friends. His vision for the car was a wedge of cheese. He and his friends have some kind of fascination with cheese -- not sure what that's about. Anyway, with R's help, he cut it and sanded it, then painted it and added some mouse stickers.

J was so excited to bring home a first place trophy! His car beat out all the cars in his den - 11 in all. J's car also raced against all the winners in the pack and his car came in 2nd place overall out of 35 cars. It's always fun to see what kind of creations the kids come up with. One shaped his car into the form of a pencil, there was a spiderman car, a firetruck. The boys get so creative and they always have fun at the Pinewood Derby no matter what place their car finishes. It's always our favorite Cub Scout event.
