Nevada City Pinewood Derby

Cub Scout Pinewood Derby, Nevada City

One of the fun things about living in a small town is something like the annual Nevada City Cub Scout Pack 23 Pinewood Derby.  This year’s event included 51 cars, some racing for speed, others in the art category.  I loved seeing the enthusiasm on the kids’ faces as they watch the cars they’ve created from a block of wood race down the track.  Thank you to the Lions Club for their continued support for the pack, this year they sponsored 3 Best of Shows and 12 design awards.  In addition the boys with the top speeds also took home a trophy.

Congrats to all the Cub Scouts and their families who participated in this week’s Pinewood Derby.  If you’re not a Cub Scout and want to join the races, check out the annual Nevada City Soapbox Derby, signs up are this Saturday for the June 5th event.  “Are you the dad that wanted to build your kids pinewood derby car in Cub Scouts?
