I'm still around.  I have my hand in several little projects that have taken some time to prepare for.  The most recent event was a Derby for our church.  Our Cub Scouts had their Pinewood Derby last weekend.  This weekend we had an open race for our church.  No rules, which means, there was a little smoke in the room.

Those trophies above, I made them.  The most expensive part was the three spark plugs that cost $5.63 all together.  For under $10, we had those awards.  For another $20, we had recognition for 16 other cars/racers.  I found some awards online that I printed off and we tied up popcorn and an absorbent cloth with some raffia.
There were a couple of cars that had rocket engines and as they zipped down the track, there was smoke and sparks.  It was a fun event and they may even make it an annual event. This wasn't a clear picture but the smoke is obvious.  The car to the left of the red one, was called a train.  It took a while to set up but when it went down the track, it separated and the front part shot forward.  Pretty creative.
