Pinewood Derby 2016

It's that time of year again, so Pap came out and helped Thing Two with his car for the Pinewood Derby race. 

As you can tell from the pictures, Carrie and Damon also raced cars they'd worked on after the race. Liam came in 2nd place, not too shabby, and Carrie's car beat his when they raced at the end. 

Damon's car is a minion, Carrie's is based on (what else these days) Poseidon and all things Greek, and Liam's is a tribute to the Millenium Falcon. Credits all to whoever deserves them. 

The race was held at an airport hanger, so while the grown ups set up and prepared for the races, the Scouts got to check out a plane with a guide. Carrie also took the first two of these photos:

The boys had a really good time, and there was lots of good sportsmanship shown. I was impressed with the behaviors and attitudes of the boys. 

Not being a Scout, my attention span had been exceeded, but I was proud of our guy and his fast car and it was fun to see the excitement, the hard work paying off, and the trophy rack that Liam also built.
