When we started scouting, the boys all talked about the Space Derby. Not quite knowing what it was, we went into it, fueled by YouTube videos and web searches. Brant and Daddy worked hard on their rockets, Daddy made one too!
The day of the Space Derby we had some winter weather, so it was postponed to the following Monday night. We blasted off in Cub Scout style, and all appreciated the dry run for the upcoming Pinewood Derby.

|We downloaded a program that helps keep the racers straight, and score them. It was confusing. And loud. and confusing.|
|But the boys had a blast (admidst various finger boo boos from propellers).|
