Miracles were performed. Reputations were made. Excellent food was shared. Coyotes serenaded us. Strange things were seen. There were cool cars. There were fast cars. There were cool and fast cars. There were a bunch of really great cars built by Cub Scouts, siblings, parents, and adults.
And in the Pack championship race, an inexplicable twist of fate sent the defending champion's car* spinning off the track and the main trophy passing on to a eager new Tiger Cub. (the only time such a thing happened all day)
And as part of the race prep, we took photos of every single car for informational & documentary purposes in a "photo box" we created for that purpose (total investment: about 50 cents). We've assembled & posted those photos at:
Take a look and let me know what you think.
*my son's car, of course...
Are you entering your cars in the midamericaderby?
Mr. Steve - Pack 316
Once we got the photo process going, it didn't take long (maybe 10 min) to photo all the cars in 4 quadrants. We'll plan on doing this for the Four Peaks District Derby as well.
And a testament to the value of workshops:
I was a bit disappointed at the turnout for some of the workshops we held. But here's how the folks who did show up fared:
1st, 2nd, & 3rd, Pack
1st, 2nd, & 3rd, Wolf
1st & 2nd, Bear
1st, 2nd, & 3rd, Open (Stock)
1st, Open (Plummet)
I was hoping to have these up sooner, but a complete computer failure slowed things up a bit.
And so, I present to you the Pack 242 Pinewood Derby cars for 2014:
