Derby photos

(I'm not feeling very well today, so I'll keep this short.)

Ross's car was the Golden Dragon.

Chris moved away from the boat theme this year, and instead made a fire engine.

On race day, the Cub Scouts were exuberant, and most of the adults, well-fortified with coffee, were in good spirits as well. I tried to get some good shots of Ross with his buddy Christopher, but they were not in the mood for posing.

In the audience

Ross was trying so hard to be a good sport, and to console his disappointed buddy.

At the end of the day, Ross placed third in the pack!

The boys behind his are brothers, and they won 1st and 2nd places. Do you think we can pry any secrets out of their dad for next year?

Christopher won an honorable mention for his car, which was really nice. Again, not in the mood for posing for photos, the boys did let me get a shot with their awards:

The fire engine came in first in the open division (for parents and siblings). It was extremely fast -- I'm pretty sure Chris had the fastest car in the room on Saturday.

Congratulations to all!

Engineers have an unfair advantage.
