FV1 Pinewood Derby Activity

A couple of weeks ago our ward held a Pinewood Derby activity. Brad wanted no part in "Team Hanson" so I did the car by myself. I made an "iCar" and I found the idea here, thanks Design Mom! (LOVE her!) Check out my sweet car:



Some took it more seriously than others...this is my friend Tom's car, complete with propeller and remote control! It was part of the "Anything Goes" Category. It was AWESOME!



Even though my car was cute, it was slow...mainly due to aerodynamics, placement of weight and the fact that the wheels were crooked. :) Oh well, it was my 1st EVER!



I won the "Tortoise Award" -- I'm sure you can figure that out!

So impressed you made your car yourself, i wouldn't have done that. Plus your car was super clever!

I love the racing shot!
