The Making and Racing of the Master Bolt

Pinewood Derby time! Every year Rehm comes up with a design idea and Michael and I do our best to help in turn the idea into an actual Pinewood Derby car. This year Rehm was inspired by Greek mythology and Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson and the Olympians series.

When he first described his idea for the car, I did not thing it was going to be possible to implement. After a few minutes of drawing it out we figured out a way to make it happen. I think it turned out wonderfully. It raced well and he was the second fastest in his den and middle of the pack in, well, his pack.

His birthday and the Derby were the same day. The cub master had the pack sing to him.

I wonder what next year's design will be.
