Pinewood Derby 2011

Well, try as he might, Ted couldn't convince Sam to do a "brick" pinewood derby car like Lincoln did last year. Instead, Sam knew exactly what he wanted. A blue racing car with a red stripe down the middle and two yellow racing strips next to the red. I think I, I mean Sam, did a great job painting the car! :) Sam was totally thrilled with his #32 Racing Special. He won several races, and couldn't have been more happy. I, on the other hand, was not very happy about their choice of weight. Yes, those are bullett casings (I think that is what they are called - I didn't exactly grow up with a hunter). I didn't think it was entirely appropriate, but all the scouts and male leaders thought it was a great choice.

I guess, try as I might, I will never truly be able to think like a boy scout. :)
