Last Pinewood Derby Ever!

We've reached a new milestone in parenting. We've just completed our last Cub Scout Pinewood Derby car for our youngest son. We've put 4 boys through Scouts, and we're closing in on the end of Cub Scouting.

John and AJ made his car this year. They put all of John's experience (and everything he read on the Internet) into this car. AJ designed the car, cut it, painted it, drilled it, polished axles, and all the other good "secret" stuff people do to make a winning pinewood derby car.

Here are the results.

The night of the derby, everyone checked in their cars.

Then they raced. AJ's car won a couple of races, and he came in third overall. Everyone had a great time that evening. The leaders did an awesome job recognizing all the boys' hard work and made it a really fun night.
