Pinewood Derby Weigh-In

This afternoon we finished painting and putting together Lon's pinewood derby car!  Lon did most of the work.  I helped drawing the outlines and putting on the spray sealer. Mark helped nailing in the wheels.  The rest was all Lon!
The car!
Space Maniac!
The front
after burners!

Lon is proud of his work!
Before we went to the official weigh in, we stopped by Harris Teeter for a little bit of pizza dinner. I wanted to try the Asian bar. It was not too bad, for here it was good.  When we got there at around 6:30, most of the bar was sold out.
Getting entered into the system! Name, car number and rank!
Passing all the requirements, height, wheel clearance, length, all the things that have to be just so.
Making sure the car cleared the track.
They weighed the car. They were impressed out car weighed exactly 5 ounces.
The official picture with his car!
After the car was impounded, so it would safely make it to the derby tomorrow we went out for ice cream at Dairy Queen.  Lon wanted an Oreo Brownie Earthquake, but he knows he can not finish it all by himself, so we split it!
Lon is thinking he can probably finish one by himself now.

Tomorrow is going to be fun!
