This is the time of year in which thousands of Cub Scouts all across America are preparing their Pinewood Derby racers. John Grossbohlin sent me photos of his son Joshua working on his chess inspired pinewood racer. The photo at left is of Joshua with the finished work. The checkerboard pattern and the pawn driver were made by Joshua with hand tools. If you would like to know more about the Pinewood Derby racing program, Randy Worcester's Pinewood Derby website or the The Pinewood Derby Supersite are great places to start.

Good Luck Joshua! It looks like a fast car. I like that it brought your love of chess into the race. And thanks John for the photos.
