Pinewood Derby

Dylan raced in his first Cub Scout Pinewood Derby last night. I had no idea how "serious" pinewood derby racing was until last night. Wow! Dylan worked hard with Grandpa cutting and sanding a block of pine into the shape of his car. Then he painted it ... a special green color that he chose all by himself from mommy's special paints. (And was very upset that I was disturbing him by taking a picture)

After the paint was dry we carefully selected the stickers he bought at the craft store and placed them on his car. He came up with a name for his car ... The Turbo Cobra

After much anticipation, Dylan raced his car. Heat after heat... and took second place in the Tiger Cub Division. He also won for Best Car Name! We are all very proud of Dylan and his great sportsmanship!
