Eastford Hosts Pinecar Prix

Pine cars “roared” down the track on Sunday March 8 at the Congregational Church of Eastford Kids’ Club annual Pinecar Prix. The colorful and creative cars were built by the children from simple kits that included a block of pine, wheels and axles. Contestants in the Kids’ Club class were ages 5 through grade 6. “This year they really put a lot of work into building their cars,” said club leader James Barlow. A digital timing system precisely measured each car’s time to run down the slick aluminum track as a cheering crowd of friends and family looked on.

Winners (for speed) in the Kids’ Club class were Robert R 1st place, Bina B in 2nd and David B in 3rd. Best design prizes (a tie) went to Meadow B for her “American Popsicle” car and Zoë Labonte for her “Super Mario” car. The most creative car was Natalia Kneeland’s “Cheese Mouse.” There was also an Open Class for speed for racers of all ages. Winners were Robert R (1st), Mia C (2nd) and Porter B (3rd). The Kids’ Club meets Sunday evenings from 6:00-7:45 pm September – May. For information – https://cceastford.org/for-you/children/
