Pinewood Derby: Introducing Hot Shot!

Griffin started dreaming up his car design months before the actual race, and was happiest to just have six wheels! He didn't place, but could care less as he just wanted to be able to play with his car.

Thursday night was the annual cub scout pinewood derby. After much jostling (pretty much between the dads), the races began. Faced with no high-tech finish line, we put our camera on a tripod and were given the charge of "photo finish." There was only one time that we had to actually use it, but at least it gave me a good spot to see the end results.

He also earned his Bear badge. Hopking that he could go to Webelos, he was disappointed when we told him that he would have to wait until he was 10. Rats!
