While Pinewood derbies can be run at any time during the year, April and May tend to be "derby season." Grayson has been very busy with multiple derbies each week. I addition to those, as the derby for OUR ward was coming up, he also hosted a Derby Workshop in our garage (as he has done for years now). He provides the tools, and the expertise, to help anyone along.
Saturday morning Gray got everything set up.
Tables and Tools. Primer and Paint.
Step-by-Step instructions ... see them taped to the freezer.
Cut out the car body
Drill holes and add weight.
Bondo to cover and keep it in.
Ironically, OUR scout (Cooper) has not been wanting to go to scouts lately. I thought for sure he'd still want to participate in the derby. He did NOT. He did not even want to discuss building a car. We decided not to push him. So when derby time came ... there wasn't a Blackham boy in the race :(
