Tonight was PWD night for the pack. It is a fun event and a nice fund raiser. All of the kids have a great time running around with their friends and watching the races in between eating snacks, playing their DSs and getting in trouble for sneaking too close to the track. The actual racing and car construction seems like it is more for the parents. (5% of the cars that ran tonight appeared to be made by parents and it is understandable since carving and assembling a car is not really a hobby suited to an 8 year old.) I know that night is beloved by many and hugely traditonal but I'd love to see it modified to be something that the kids could do more independently.
