Last Friday, February 12, our ward had its 4th annual Pinewood Derby for the men (and young men too). This has become quite the ward activity! The first derby occurred right after we moved to Rochester. Coley claimed the title of "Track Champion" that year. Ever since, it has become a battle between Coley and the bishop. Year two and three were close races, but the bishop claimed the title those years.
With all of our traveling during the past month, Coley didn't have much time to work on his car (and even had to enter his car unpainted), but he claimed the title of "Track Champion" again this year- much to the dismay of the bishop!
I think the men are already planning the changes to their derby car for next year!
Coley (with Abby's help) accepts his trophy. (Notice the racing uniform! It was an early birthday present to Coley from my dad for the 2nd annual derby. It caused quite a stir that year!)
