Today was Declan and Owen’s first Pinewood Derby. It’s their first year as Cub Scouts and the Derby is one of the highlights of the year. They picked out their car designs from a book mom brought home from the library. It wasn’t much of a plan, just a shape. So we improvised the rest.
The cars from all the dens were raced in various heats. When it was all said and done only the scouts from a particular den competed against each other. There are eight other boys in the Tiger Den with Declan and Owen. In the end Owen took first place and Declan took second place! They were both incredibly excited.
