2010 Pinewood Derby

Yes! It's pinewood derby time! It was a lot of fun this year and ALL the boys had a good time!
I can't believe it was Dallin's last year. In April he'll be an 11 year old scout. (Where did the time go? It seems like yesterday that he was a wolf.) Anyway, here are some photos and video of the derby....Enjoy! The last few videos are Clint's and mine. The Cub leaders made cars and raced against each other and guess who won....that's right...ME. (Thanks Clint for doing my wheels and axles). The young men and women made derby cars for their activity and Clint made one that was fast, but since they could make theirs with unlimited weight, Clint's didn't win. A kid named Joey with a car that weighed a little over a pound won. They all had a lot of fun!Just before the race! Can you feel the excitement?!I love this picture! The car that's in it is the 6th boy over from the right.
I love the boys faces as they watch their cars. So cute!Dallin's car is in the red lane, Calvin's is in the white lane, and their friend,
Brock's car was in the blue lane. Brock's car was pretty darn fast. Dallin won 2nd place! He was happy, yet a little disappointed
that he didn't win 1st. (Ya can't win'em all) He's such a good sport though, and didn't
let it bother him. He knows that it's just a fun race and we're all
there to have fun! He WAS so happy to get 2nd! Was this a happy kid or what?
Calvin won 1st! Next year he'll have quite the challenge,
there were alot of boys, (with Dad's), who are new to cub's, who
worked hard to make their cars fast.
(Between their cars in the first race of their heat, it was about 300th's of a second...photo finish)

How fun...I wish we could have been there. I remember having so much fun when going with you guys when we were still in LV.

Good job on the cars. I remember when Clint and Jake helped me make my own car many many years ago. It was fun.

Oh, the Pinewood Derby! I have attended ours every year now for the past few years -- and loved what it. It makes those boys so happy and excited - -and it makes me feel badly that I was such a lousy cub scout mama for my boys at that stage.
