Winning big

At this year’s Pack 104 Pinewood Derby, Hooper’s car didn’t win any races, but he won the Cubmaster Award, given to the Cub Scout whose Pinewood Derby car looks most like he made it himself, with no adult help. We had to leave before the derby was over, so we weren’t there for the announcement. When Hooper’s cubmaster brought the trophy to the house later on, he said the vote had been unanimous.

Hooper had been bumming a bit about not having won any races — he knew we should have added some weight to the car, but he had chosen not to anyway. But this trophy made him feel MUCH better. In fact, he tried to stuff the thing into his bookbag to take to school today. It didn’t come close to fitting, so it stayed home.
