Ahhh, the scent of pinewood and paint was in the air tonight! Cub Scout Pack #352 had their first ever Pinewood Derby today. Boys were running all over the gym, waving little cars around.

Preston's car weigh in came to 4.8oz. He saw some other boys gluing pennies to their cars to up the weight so he got in on the action. 2 strategically placed pennies on the underneath of the front axle upped his weight to an even 5oz, the max allowed. Fourteen cars were entered and raced. It was a very fast and close race. Preston chose the number 98 for his car because that is the same number Adam used on his car 25 years ago.

We are very proud to say that Preston was UNDEFEATED! He won every single race!! Preston also won an award for Best Sportsmanship!

He is on cloud 9 tonight. So proud of his car. I am so proud of him for working hard on it and understanding the point of the event, being a good sport. We asked him what he would do if he did not win, and he said it was ok, he just wanted to have fun and see the cars race.

On to the pictures and videos!
