Cub Scouts and dads (and a couple of moms) worked together to find the perfect blueprint and got working on the outline. They then headed over to Ken Clegg, our local pinewood derby expert, to get their derby car cut into the perfect racing shape.
With that fresh-cut pinewood smell in the air, Cub Scouts went to work sanding their cars into smooth riding masterpieces. After that, each car was weighed and sent to the pit stop to attach the wheels that would take them to the finish line. Then it was off to the practice track, to see whose car reigned supreme!
Check out some of the action we got on the practice rounds.
