First Place!

I am very proud to announce that our son, Bryce, won First Place in the Council Pinewood Derby!

Since he only got 3rd Place in the District Pinewood Derby, we had prepared him not to do very well at the Council level. We made sure to tell him that none of my 3 brothers nor Daddy who is an Eagle Scout ever made it to the Council Derby and that the competition would be stiff. We didn't want him to get his hopes up only to be disappointed.

We were very surprised to see how well he was doing after the first round. Then, when the second round was done and he was still in first place we were shocked.

His car was perfect for the Council track. It was 48 ft long and made of composite (plastic) instead of the 32 feet and made of metal like the tracks at the Pack and District levels. His aerodynamic car did much better on the longer track. That is his car on top of his trophy.

Anyway, he is one very happy boy today. And his smile makes it all worth it and more. What makes it even better is that he told me he was praying the whole time and afterward he made sure to thank God for allowing him to do so well.

Way to go, Bryce!
