Last night was out Pinewood Derby. This time it was held in the Lake Oswego, OR Armory. Which was pretty cool actually. I mean, we all had jackets on. No big deal, the races really heated people up. The boys went nuts in watching about 90 minutes of racing. So much better than Nascar! This year as last the Order of the Arrow did our race. We had time to kill during the setup, weigh-in and inputting names into the system. So, I did what any Cubmaster, Woodbadger would do. WE SANG! And we sang The Rootbeer Song! Thank goodness for my iPhone and Google!
The rest is history. Records were smashed and boys had fun. I will even say that I purposely messed with a car! The Webelos Den Leader who raced in the Open Class, put a propeller on his.
He broke the track record. So, one race we held onto it for a second. The last race we put it on backwards. IT STILL KICKED BUTT! We all giggled hard!
We handed out First, Second & Third place medals to the Dens and then trophies for the overall. I had three parents judge Best Design and Best Unique.
There were three of each. The boys had a great time. Elliot got 3rd in the Bear Den.
