Paping Pinewood Derby

Today was the Paping Pinewood Derby! Masterminded by fellow Partyka-er
John Mejias, it’s the spiritual successor to the Paping Soapbox Derby.


The pinewood racers on display before the action got under way. My last-minute entry is barely visible
behind Gabe‘s awesome “Bug” car.


The spectacular track was built by the one and only Andy Wilhelm.


Nifty trophy. Why Eiffel Tower?
