Pinewood Derby

Yep, it's that time of year again!  This was our 8th consecutive year making a car for the Pinewood Derby.  Next year will be our last "official" year....after that if we want to participate we'll have to race in the open class.  Little Man again built a sea creature car.  Before he was old enough to race "officially" and HE raced in the open class, he built a shark car.  Then a swordfish car.  Last year his first official car was a giant squid.  This year it was two eels.  His is the green car second from right.

He has always won awards for design, but this year he really wanted to win a trophy for speed.  He came in fourth place.  He was satisfied with that.  (They give out trophies for first through fourth places.) :)

The design and build team!

Next year he would like to build a big goldfish! :)
