Obi-Wan Kenobi at the Pinewood Derby

Star Wars fan and awesome dad Lawrence La Raia blogged about how he and his son made their own tribute to Obi-Wan Kenobi and a landspeeder in this year’s Cub Scout Pinewood Derby.

My son and I built this over the course of two and half days for his first Cub Scout Pinewood Derby. It was his idea to do a Star Wars vehicle, and this one seemed like it would be the easiest, given my limited handiwork. He helped with the design, filing, sanding, and painting. And the fruits of our labors earned us the “People’s Choice” award, out of roughly 30 cars. This award is voted on by his Cub Scout peers, and he told me didn’t even vote for his own car.
