Third Place


Mr. Boy’s car won third place overall, out of about sixty "vehicles," in his Cub Scout Pack’s Pinewood Derby race. Also the second-place ribbon for his Tiger Cub (first grade) scout den. Mr. B. chose the car’s shape and colors and did the painting, and was aided by a family friend’s band saw, belt sander and electric drill with the cutting of the block, and his polishing of the axles and plastic wheels. Dad put the wheels and axles on and glued them in place, and handled the distribution of the lead weights up to a maximum of 5 ounces, and Mom contributed clear fingernail polish to make the acrylic paint gleam.We went mentally prepared to lose, so were delighted to win 3rd.
