Then Todd and Tyler attached the wheels, put weights on it (which involved a late night trip to home depot to get a wood chisel) and made sure it was ready to go.
Friday night we had to take it up to the church and get it weighed in, and Tyler was allowed to take a couple practice runs. I made him stop, as it was flipping over when it hit the end of the track it was going so fast....
Saturday we were there all afternoon. Each boy competed against his den members, and each boy got to race 4 times. Tyler managed to win all 4 races, and ended up 1st in his den!
After all 3 dens were through, he got to go through the semi-finals, where he managed to win about 1/2 of his races. He didn't place in the top 3, but he was happy with winning among his den members. He also won the award for most patriotic.
All in all, it was a fun afternoon....Tyler is ready to start working on his car for next year already.
