Pinewood Derby

This past Saturday Nathan competed in his school’s Pinewood Derby for cub scouts.
He got first place within his den and 3rd place overall. He’ll be going to districts in March.
His car was about 1/4 of an ounce under weight, so Ricardo’s hoping that by adding that back in his car will be even faster. He missed first place by 13 thousandths of a second.

Here’s Ricardo sawing away at the block of wood.
(He’s thrilled to be having his picture taken during this very frustrating moment!)

Nathan’s helping to polish the axles.

Ricardo is installing the wheels.

Anxiously awaiting his turn.

The first race. They raced 4 times each and the best time was taken.

Standing with the other placeholders.

He took home a lot of hardware that he’s very proud of!

    Way to go, Nathan!
