Pinewood Derby 2010

Pack 141 held its annual Pinewood Derby this evening. There were about 50 cars entered, and each one raced at least three times. The boys, cut, sanded & painted their own cars. it was neat to see all the different cars, and fun to watch the boys' faces when the cars were racing down the track!

When he first arrived, Will stood in line with the other boys to register his car. The scoutmasters measured it, weighed it, and made sure it met the required specifications. We had a little hiccup when his wheels were not far enough apart. A few tools and some wonder glue later "Lightning Bolt" was ready to race!!

Will's friend Tyler's car did really well!

Here's Lightning Bolt coming down the track - it tended to start out a bit slower and get faster as it neared the finish line. It came in 2nd and 3rd in all of its heats.

David got to start the races!
Already they're planning for next year!
