2016 Pinewood Derby Recap

Thank you to everyone who came to race and volunteer at last Sunday’s Pinewood Derby race. The 70 Indian Guides and Princesses who showed up were treated to an afternoon filled with speed, artistry, competition, and pizza.

Speaking of competition, the differences between first and second places for boys and girls was in the hundredths of seconds. This year again brought some of the most unique and creative designs we’ve seen. Check out the slideshow below for pictures from the event.
