Yesterday was Liam's first Pinewood Derby. If you're not into the Cub Scout thing, the Pinewood Derby is a car race where the scout builds his own race car from a block of wood. Liam and Doug spent the past few weekends building Liam's car. Liam did some of the sanding and painting of the car. He also made all of the design decisions for his car. It had to be like a tiger; he wanted black with orange stripes.
You can see his black and orange striped car above.
We bundled up and braved the snowy roads for the race. Each car races in 8 heats, and the average speed of the 8 heats determines the winners.
He was into it. He sat and watched each one of the 58 heats.
He won 4 of his 8 heats and finished 10th overall. He enjoyed his first Derby so much. The planning for next year's car has already begun.
