Pinewood Derby 2013

I have been working on a different kind of miniature the past couple of weeks with my son.  

Tonight he competed with 27 other cars at the Cub Scout Pinewood Derby.

 We had to add some additional weight for the finals tonight.  Although he was not the fastest car there, he was awarded a certificate for "Most Attention to Detail"  It was a fun event and we went out for a hamburger afterward!


  1. As I recall the hard part of the Pinewood Derby was getting the dads to let the boys carve their own cars. I was guilty.

  2. You must be proud of your son. How nice to do a project like this together.
    Greetings Dorien

  3. I can attest to the Bill's's more for the dads than the boys...LOL! I know this from experience with two cub scouts.

  4. Hello Troy,
    Congratulations to both of you! Anyone can make a fast mini car...but how many actually get the detail right.
    Big hugs,

  5. The car looks AWSOME! Congratz to you both.

  6. Nice work! Love your little car. Congratulations on the details! That's what counts! :D

  7. Great job, boys! That is one cool car!
