My son and I had missed a few of the den meetings recently. I was on my
way home from work and had called my wife to see what the schedule was
for scouts that night. She said it was the pinewood derby. We had not
gotten our kit because we had missed the recent meetings, so we had no
car to race.

My son really wanted to do this together and I was feeling like I was
going to let him down by not having a car to race. So I ran to a local
craft store and bought a kit. The kit had a car that was cut to shape
but the rest we had to do ourselves. We had only an hour before race
time, so we scrambled to get it together.

To make a long story short he won 1st Place in his den and then went on
to win 1st Place in the whole Pack. We were both surprised and excited!
Who would have thought that would happen? Unbelievable...
