everything is possible... the impossible just takes a little longer

slow and steady wins the race

let the races begin...

At this year's Cub Scout Derby race Andrew wanted a Wright Brother's inspired car.  He worked hard and Papa Moore helped him realize his design.  Andrew took a 3rd, 2nd and 1st place ribbons on the day of the race and he won a trophy for the "Most Original" design.  With the wings, his car would have been too wide to race... so for display purposes the wings fit nicely on the frame but are removed for the actual race.  Andrew painted the car but purposely wanted to leave the wings unpainted so they looked like the original plane built by the Wright brothers.


Andrew's car is on the right.
