Pinewood Derby 2013

Yesterday was the Pinewood Derby for 2013.  This year we had two scouts that participated...John is a Bear and Nathan is in his first year of scouts as a Tiger.  We are blessed to have a great Pack to be a part of where we live.  But part of having a great Pack means that there are a lot of boys who run cars for the Derby each year.  I don't know how many there were yesterday, but I'm guessing around at least 70.  Joe has learned over the last couple of years (because let's be honest about who is really in charge of building the car....sure the boys help, but the dad's play a significant role) some tips of the trade (so to speak).  It paid off this year with Nathan's car.  John picked out a different design so he didn't get quite as much speed out of his.  Nathan placed 2nd among the Tigers (there were around 15 that raced I think).  He missed 1st place by 1/1000 of a second.  He placed 4th in the Pack. 

Yep, the girls were really enjoying themselves.  They did cheer their brothers' cars on...
