Our derby was on the 16th. We have a new committee and we really tried to make this a great event! In the years past it had always been for bragging rights only. This was the first year that the boys actually won awards, certificates, ribbons and the overall winner received a trophy. We assigned some parents as the race judges. We let the boys vote by secret ballot on their favorites in various categories like coolest car, funniest, best paint job, etc. Every boy left with something!
My son's car
These are the boys voting for their favs
My son was worried because he had a few school projects and did not have as much time as he would have liked to work on his car so he was absolutely shocked when he won.... 1st PLACE in one of the races and was voted by his fellow scouts, COOLEST CAR! YAY FOR HIM!!!
