Our first Pinewood Derby
And right before the pinewood derby, I was asked to become the den leader! So now I get even more learning experiences about cub scouts! It has been fun so far.
Dinoguy did get a medal for fastest in the wolf den and a certificate for "fastest looking" car. His car was a tenth of an ounce lighter than allowed and we think that is why it was fourth fastest instead of overall fastest.Or maybe because Dinoguy dropped it right as we were heading there. Apparently the balance on the axles is very delicate and the weight is very important. He had a great time and now I know more than I had ever even thought possible to know about making tiny wooden race cars.
