Gavin Takes PineWood Derby District Championship!

Gavins' car is second from right, purple with orange stripe.
The plot begins with a block of wood, four wheels/axle's and two eager men. The stage is set for the design, the plan and the engineering required. Shortly after, the purchases begin: A Pinewood Derby "How-To" magazine, bottles of paint, weights, graphite and sandpaper. Ultimately, many hours of calm and patient work in the shop. Alas, the climax: Eric and Gavin each raced this Saturday at the Sierra Blanca Pinewood Derby, in Ruidoso. Gavin took 1st Place overall, out of more than 40 cars, by a hair. (Think in the thousands of seconds.) Memories were made and we observe our intermission before driving to Regionals in Roswell where the end of this story will be unveiled.

Erics' car is on far left, red with Lego Driver.


  1. Good luck at Regionals, Gavin. We will be rooting for you! Love Carla and Doug

  2. We are excited about the next phase of this race wish you all lots of luck

  3. I am amazed at how grown up Gavin is looking in just 6 months!! Nina is having distance pains - needs a GS fix soon!!!
