Pinewood Popular

In Kansas, Girl Scouts from all around Miami County broke out the pinewood derby track for a day of racing Saturday afternoon in Louisburg. The Louisburg Herald reports that dozens of cars, fashioned into many interesting shapes, including a high heel, kept the attention of the gymnasium full of spectators for more than an hour as the girls from Troop 1911 waited with great anticipation to hear the final results of the 2011 powder puff derby.

Because there were so many participants, Brownie leader Susan Kratochvil said the competition was broken into six groups: Daisies, second grade Brownies, third-grade Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes and a fun run for anyone who wanted to participate.
