It has been many, many decades since I raced my block of wood with wheels down the track. The creation my Dad and I came up with was basic to say the least. I remember my older brothers trying to take over the design process, but I stood strong. This was my car and I stuck with it win or lose. It lost, but it was a great memory with Dad.
Some things have changed since my Pinewood Derby, sleeker cars, computerized race results, but the one constant that still remains; the camaraderie of the adults and kids leading up to and during the event.
I want to thank everyone from Cub Scout Pack 299 for being such great hosts I had an amazing time.
