Krewrace-8

Our 6-year-old grandson Krew built his first pinewood derby racer this spring.

Krew is in his first year as a member of Trail Life, a Christian scouting organization for boys.

Krew's Trail Life troop is a newly-established local troop, and this week was their first-ever pinewood derby competition.

Three boys from Krew's "Fox" group (ages 5 & 6) entered cars in the derby.  Krew's racer is the blue #4 car.

Having never seen a pinewood derby myself, I had no idea what to expect.  But I surely didn't expect such a high-tech track...

...with electronic timing to .001 of a second!

They ran 4 heats, with each car on each of the 4 tracks, then added up the times.

The boys waiting at the Finish Line, so excited to see their cars race!

After 4 tight races, Krew's times earned him the 3rd place bronze medal.

I'm pretty partial to the handsome boy in red!

A good first-time experience for my little engineer-minded Krew.

Could he be any cuter?

I know he's already planning and thinking about his car for next year...

On your mark, get set, GO!
