This past weekend Pinewood Pro was at the Pinewood Derby World Championship in Times Square, New York City. Kids had so much fun building fast LEGO Derby mini race cars with our Pro Brick Wheel Assemblies and Zinc Brick Weights.

My Pinewood Derby story.

Pinewood Derby...More Than Just a Car!

I wrote this for the new book, Pinewood Derby Fast & Furious.

Pinewood Pro hosts STEAM Summer Camp LEGO Car Race at Housatonic Community College.   Joe Gargiulo described and demonstrated physics of motion using LEGO Cars.   Kids then built and raced LEGO cars using the PRO Brick Wheel Assembly and Zinc Brick weights to race their cars down a pinewood derby track.   Awards given for the Rabbit Car, Turtle Car, Best Design, "Best Engineer" and Judge's Favorite.  Kids had a blast (and learned physics and engineering)!

Pinewood Derby Museum Grand Opening 
...you are cordially invited to the Grand Opening of the new Pinewood Derby Museum.
BSA Connecticut Yankee Council building, 60 Wellington Rd, Milford, CT on Sunday Jan 4th from 3-5.
  
The Pinewood Derby Museum is the only one of its kind in the nation.  I have researched pinewood derby history for well over 10 years and have an extensive artifact collection.   It is fun, informative, inspirational and interactive. The display features; 
• Select pages from Don Murphy’s original 1953 PWD plan, complete with his Pack meeting announcement for the first pinewood derby race.
• Pictures and interviews with Donn Murphy 
• A replica of Donn Murphy’s 1953 car, “The First Racer”, signed by Donn Murphy
• Trophies, a ribbon and medals from the 2nd pinewood derby in 1954, when PWD racing spread.
• Cool pinewood derby cars, like the Ghost Rider, Scorpion, Hartford Whalers car, 1912 Mercer Raceabout replica and many more.
• Two digital slide show displays. One is “Your Pinewood Derby Story”,  a collection of pictures with a short story from pinewood derby racers.

Be a part of the Pinewood Derby Museum!  Write “Your Pinewood Derby Story” (hand written by the child, please) and include pictures, and we will add you to the museum slide show! Contact www.PinewoodPro.com for details.

My son won a medal for Best Design with his Shark Car Design!

We got lots of comments and had a fast car until it got manhandled and one of the axles was knocked out of alignment.
