Boogity Boogity Boogity, as Darrell Waltrip would say! Today was the Cub Scout North Florida Council District Pinewood Derby Race! If you’ll remember, Alex was among the scouts that placed in the Pack 280 Race, so he moved on to the district competition with another 24 Tiger Scouts. So, after we checked-in, Alex sat down and put his game face on…

Game Face

Each car ran in 3 ‘heats’, so it had the opportunity to travel down each lane, then the finish times were averaged to determine the overall winner. Trophies were awarded for the top 3 finishers. Alex was a little disappointed he didn’t win a trophy this time around and I tried to explain that it meant something just to be racing today. After all, there were many Tiger Scouts in the district that didn’t even advance to this race (his brother included), but alas, there’s just something about that trophy. Anyway, we all had a great time watching the races and cheering on the scouts.

Here’s one of Alex’s races (his car is the one on the left)…

Alex’s car was competitive, taking 2nd in this race by a hair…

So, with the Pinewood Derby over for this year, we’ll place the “Little Green Dragon Machine” on the shelf to remember the fun we had.
