Crafting for the Knotty Pinewood Races @BigfootLodge

 Crafting for Knotty Pinewood Derby


Tonight's activities include crafting pinewood derby cars for Bigfoot Lodge's monthly Knotty Pine race. Sam monthly craft project has turned into a family affair. Our friend and house guest, Chris, has join the club. Both of the guys are busy working diligently while smackin down some of Atwater Village's finest pizza from Crispy Crust. Meanwhile I'm being entertained by their chatter and loud boo-yahs. Oh and a little Murder, She Wrote. Try to guess the theme for their cars? Check back next week for the final results of the race!
