Each year the Girl Scouts out here put on their Powder Puff Derby.
The girls are given balsa wood blocks with wheels to attach and told to make racing cars out of them.
Last year Maddie's car was a leprechaun riding on a rainbow--and won first place for original design
(Sam gave a bit of help on the construction).
This year it was Turbo the Snail (construction helped by Sam) which must have won the creativity prize (Maddie and Sam had to leave before the awarding).
And this year Max too, now a Tiger--which leads up to being a Boy Scout--entered his car (styled on the Plants and Zombies video game, construction helped by Sam) into the Pinewood Derby and won a special award for best creativity.
These cars weren't quite the fastest but, in many minds, definitely the BEST!!
