The Pinewood Derby car race is on or maybee not!!!!

We are very excited about January 23rd. This is the day we enter our car into the Pinewood Derby for the first time. We got our kit last night and it is not what I thought it would be. We literally got a block of wood with four wheels and four nails. the guys will have to literally carve the car out of this block of wood. This should be interesting!!!!!!!

These are some examples of what was carved out of that block of wood.  The chief is a modeler.  I think he can pull this off.  The Cisco Kid has not chosen what he wants his car to look like yet.  If I would guess I would say it will be a fire truck or a police car.  We will see.....I will post the progress of our Pinewood Derby car creation.


  1. Wow, that is intersting. I didn't realize they had to carve the wood themselves! I am not sure our Cub Scout is doing this event or not, but if so, we will have to call you for some tips! Good luck to TCK and The Chief. I am sure it will be a great success!

  2. That sounds like a lot of work. Sounds like fun for the boys though.

  3. I think in my house it might would just stay a block of wood. I am very interested to see how the car turns out. Best of Luck :)

  4. Our race is this weekend! I will let you know how it goes. Good luck with the car!
