Pinewood Derby


It's important to learn life's lessons early. Tonight the Dude learned a very important lesson: No one in the Gisselquist clan are very handy with tools and wood. That lesson was delivered in the form of the Cub Scout Pinewood Derby race. Actually, the Dude did pretty well - finishing last only once over several heats - but at the end of the evening - no trophies.

To his credit, it didn't bother him in the least - he is a Gisselquist after all and accepting defeat in contests of woodcrafting skill comes natural.

I think you are playing the wrong game. Wood working has nothing to do with Pinewood Derby. It's Physics that is the key to a fast car. If you got some time, go to DerbyTalk.Com and read their forums. You'll learn how to make a much faster car next year and if you have a question, just ask it. The experts their thrive on sharing their knowledge. Good luck!
