District Pinewood Derby

Today was the district pinewood derby. M had high hopes of placing in the Webelos II race. After all, he took first in his den and overall first in our pack at our pack pinewood derby. Alas, it was not to be... some of those other cars were really really fast. M finished 2nd or 3rd in 5 of his 6 races (out of 6) and 4th in the other, but there were some blindingly fast cars there.* M ended up 9th out of 16.

A didn't have quite the expectations of M, but was still quite hopeful. Even more so when he took 1st in 4 out of 6 races. However, he wasn't racing against the fastest cars in his den.* A ended up finishing 9th out of 24.

While they didn't win a trophy, they both had a good time and cheered on each other and other kids from our pack.

*They race each car in each of 6 lanes and average the times.
