Pinewood Derby Results

Posted by Picasa

The pinewood derby was held today. There were many cars competing in the race. There was also a lot of technology including electronic scoring and a computer that projected the results. Unfortunately, the technology was not the most reliable in the world. There were a couple of long breaks when the laptop with the results failed. Anyway, it was a pretty successful day for me. My car had several firsts and seconds in the heats in which it competed. The rankings are determined by average time to finish across all heats in which a car competes. My car managed to finish 5th overall. Not good enough for a trophy, but a nice outing nonetheless.

By the way, in the photo above, my car is the one on the left. It's got a green number 99 painted on it.
