The boys had their Boy Scout Pinewood Derby today. They started preparing their cars a couple of weeks ago. Dad helped with final details. The cars needed to weigh as close to 5 ounces as possible, without going over. So Dad added “engines” made out of old batteries and foil.
Zach’s car is the one closest to the starter. This was the first run for his car. Each car would run 8 times, twice on each track.
By his face, you can guess that he won. He had several first place finishes over the 8 heats, and ended up coming in First Place in his den and Third Place for the whole pack. He got a trophy and a medal.
Brandon did well too, he came in First Place in his den, but did not place in the pack. He got a medal, but my camera died before I could get his picture.
Can’t wait till next year, I’m already planning my design……………..
