Pinewood Derby Time!

Posted: June 17, 2013 in Cub Scouts

March 5, 2013: The time has finally come! Time for the pinewood derby! Z made two cars; Rockin’ Z which he did all on his own but got some help on Alien Autopsy from his dad. They both turned out great! Alien Autopsy won first place in the Bear class and Rockin’ Z won second place in the open class race. He was so excited to win as this was his third time to race in a pinewood derby and he had never won anything in the past. I think the cars Z and his dad made this year were pretty cool. Great job guys!
