Pinewood Derby 2016

This year we hosted our own Pinewood Derby! It took longer than anticipated getting the track set up but it was so worth it.

The Scouts and siblings had a wonderful time.  There were over 20 cars entered in the race. I made my first Pinewood Derby car this year. Charlie went with a Scouting theme hoping to win that category for the fourth year in a row.
