Race Day

Last Saturday, Matt, Daniel and I went to my good friends Paul and Susan's house. It was a pinewood derby like I have never been to before! (Like I have been to many Pinewood Derby's)Paul had the track all layed out and a scale for the cars. All the rules were followed to a T! The interesting thing about this race, besides that it was at a house and not a church, is the adults had cars also. Daniel had made one and Paul needed to have one extra car so I raced one that Paul had made, it was gold! OH MY! (Did I mention there was beer and wine there also??) The race was a beautiful mix of adults and children, running along the track, cheering for their cars! I made it into the final 6, but was DQ'd in the end. Daniels car did well, but was a little slow. He only worked on it for a couple of days, it was a last minute thing. We are making our comeback plans already!! Here is a couple of pics from the big show. I had number 22, Daniel number 21, Gary 20, and Sara 19. Paul's is a smidgen on the "retentive" side...........hehehe. That's what you gotta love about him! Susan made us a delicious feast of finger foods and frankly it was a great night out! I haven't seen them in ages and I think I just may be dropping by again soon!
(Pardon the screwy pics.....I just can't seem to get this blog edit html thingy...)
