One of the fun things about living in a small town is something like the annual Nevada City Cub Scout Pack 23 Pinewood Derby. This year’s event included 51 cars, some racing for speed, others in the art category. I loved seeing the enthusiasm on the kids’ faces as they watch the cars they’ve created from a block of wood race down the track. Thank you to the Lions Club for their continued support for the pack, this year they sponsored 3 Best of Shows and 12 design awards. In addition the boys with the top speeds also took home a trophy.
