|The Pack met outside for a group photo in front of a|
visiting race car. There were so many boys that
you couldn't see the race car, so I walked
to the side to take both in my photo.

|All the Pinewood Derby cars weighed and ready for racing.|
|My son helped with the race and is taking photos of all|
the trophies and ribbons that will be presented today.
|Cars lined up ready for racing.|
|Everything is computerized. Here is the scoreboard after |
one of Caden's races. He was in lane 2, but took 1st
this heat at 223.1 MPH. Amazing for a block of
pine wood with nails holding on the wheels!

PS - But then it struck ….. if you have read my story titled Derby Doom you know what I'm talking about. If not, I should tell you that as of this writing 18 families were struck with a malady that matches the Norovirus that strikes large cruise ships. Matter of fact, that is what some have said we all came down with 2 days after the Pinewood Derby. Haven't felt that bad in more than 30 years. It lasted so long that Scout meetings were canceled for the entire following week. As of today, twelve days after the race, my wife and I still are feeling the effects of the sickness we have named the Derby Doom.
