Pinewood Derby 2010

Sai is that magical age of cub scouts. He had his first pinewood derby tonight. He had such a blast!  Here’s his car that he made.

Jay also made a car to race. After the official competition was over they had open races for anyone so Jay got to race. We also took Sai’s best bud, Angelo, to scouts and he raced the car that Joe made (Angelo’s mom didn’t know far enough in advance about the derby to make a car).

Here are pictures from the races.

    Congrats to Sai, Jay and Angelo for a job well done. That is a super cool looking snakeish Pinewood Derby car. Keep up the good work!

    The Pinewood Derby was always one of the cub scout favorites. WAY cooler than it’s evil cousin the “Rain-gutter Regatta”!
    Yeah, the boys thought it was pretty awesome. I don’t know much about the raingutter regatta so that would be interesting if we did it. Joe will have to help him out on that one, too.

    Wow, I can’t believe I’m looking at quilting blogs and come across a pinewood derby post! Having been involved with Cub Scouts for 34 years I shouldn’t be surprised.
    I hope your son enjoys cubbing (and you do too).
