I have tried talking my 3 boys into joining boy scouts, but they are not interested. Good luck and have fun building the car.

 We had our PWD last Saturday.  My son came in first place for his rank.  Good luck to your son.

 Yes. He's so excited- this is his last year to make one b/c our Pack crosses over to Boy Scouts in Jan. He's a 4th gr Webelos, and will cross over about halfway through 5th gr. Our Derby is in March.

When is your Scout's Derby?

 Awesome! My dd has always "made" one along w/ her brothers. In another couple yrs, I'm going to suggest to her Girl Scout leaders that they have their own Pinewood Derby b/c I know she would love to make one for real (dh gets her the pre-cut ones to paint and decorate now).

Not pinewood derby but we are getting ready for our AWANA grand prix and it's the same thing :)  I'm glad we have an electronic finish line because last year our first place kid won by .001 seconds!

 Our pack and GS troop have a race at the end of the PWD.  It is a lot of fun to see the girls race the boys.  The girls won this year.  We try to make all of our pack events family friendly and a lot of the families have girls, so we started the GS vs CS race a few years back and it has been a huge hit with the kids.

 I haven't seen a PWD without an electronic finish line since the early 1990's.  Didn't realize that people were still eyeballing it.
