Powder Puff Derby

This year, Piper's Girl Scout Troop participated in the Powder Puff Derby. It is the same thing as the Boy Scout's Pinewood Derby. Finn has participated in the Pinewood Derby two years now. You can read about last year and this year, if you want.

Piper worked hard on her car. 

 She wanted it to look like a tiger.
Dressed in her uniform and ready for the race!
I thought these cars were very Girl Scoutish. The blue truck had boxes of Girl Scout cookies in it. The other one was a Girl Scout on a camp out.
There were also some pretty fancy cars at the race. A couple these were my friend's daughter's cars. 
The ribbons and trophies...Each level (Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, etc.) raced against each other. After those winners were determined and given a ribbon for 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place, the 1st place winners of each level raced against each other to determine the overall winner.
The race took several hours to complete, Rilian had some fun in the photo booth while the race was going on.
 Seven did, too.
Lining up the cars to race...Piper's in the orange one on the left.
There were A LOT of cars there! I recorded all of Piper's races, but only included a few on this post so as not to bore you...

After Rilian was done at the photo booth, I think he got a little bored...he made a "snow angel" on the floor...
Piper is a Junior this year. She beat all the other Junior's cars and won 1st place!
Piper and Evy won ribbons in our troop. Evy is in Piper's Girl Scout Troop. Evy is a Brownie. She won 2nd place with the Brownies.
Not only did Piper win 1st place for the Juniors, she won 1st place overall and got a trophy for it! That means her car won EVERY race! GREAT job Piper!!!
