Even though he couldn't race, Holden wanted to make one as well. His even has a little license plate on the back with his name on it.
The only problem with your dad being an artist is that all your time is spent making the car look really cool and not making sure it is the fastest car there.
The boys and I went early to help set up for the Pine Wood Derby. Greg Hill, one of the cub scout dads, was there and started to look at Nicholas's car. He told us that it was only running on three wheels and asked if we wanted him to fix the wheels a little. Of course we jumped all over that one. Later at the weigh in Nicholas's car was significantly under weight and so Patrick Robbins, another cub scout dad, gave us his extra weights.
After all the help from our troop, Nicholas's car took first in the wolf pack, second overall and qualified for the district meet. What a great troop we have! Thanks for all the help everyone.This is a picture of our troop singing a pinewood derby song before the races.
The district race took place at the Eastfield Mall the next month. Nicholas won a few of the heats and went home with a medal. Maybe if everyone helps us again, next year we will win at the district races as well.
