Well a couple of weeks back Noah Outley asked me to help with his pine wood derby car. It's been more than a decade since Alex left cubs so I was ready for another try. Well Noah and I had a lot of fun and he made a pretty cool car but we didn't fair any better than I did with my boys.
It is kind of frustrating when you go to these things and you see some of these very fancy cars with glistening coats of paint and intricate carvings and you just know that the dad did all of the work. Noah did all of the work on his car. I could have done more work but he really wanted to do it and that is the way it should be. He did a great job too. Unfortunately the pain ran a bit under the masking tape but that happens.
We took it to the weigh-in and were able to get it exactly to 5.0 oz. That is the maximum amount allowed. They did several heats and we did win two of them so we did ok. We didn't make finals however but Noah didn't seem too bummed. We had a great time.
