Last week we participated in our first pinewood derby. Ryan helped make at least seven cars (he offered his assistance to some of the other cub scouts, and invited three neighbor boys to make cars, and had Alex and Ben make cars). Alex made an X-wing Star Fighter and Benjamin chose a patriotic design for his. Alex's car ended up doing pretty well (3rd place), especially since he built it more for looks than for speed.
Some of the cubs' other family members also participated, so it was fun to see what the girls and parents came up with.
