Pinewood Derby - Pack 287 - Cottage Grove

Sunday in Cottage Grove was the Cub Scout pinewood derby contest. If you're not familiar, or it's been a while since you've made your pinewood derby car....each car is made from a block of wood, you can make any shape you like, but it has to fit the track the cars travel down. The maximum weight of the car cannot exceed 5 ounces.

The photo shows the cars from the cub scout division. There was about 45 cars in all with three divisions. Tiger cubs [which I believe is 1st graders] cub scouts, and the third division is open to all non-scouts [mom's, dad's, siblings].

I participated in the Pinewood Derby contest when I was a Cub Scout and I won a troffy. The 5oz rule was a challenge--but my dad helped me out quite a bit and it was a success.
