Gentlemen, start your…Hey, wait a minute! There were no engines at Saturday’s Pinewood Derby races at Avon’s Heritage School!

But there was still all the excitement of an Indy 500 as ‘Two Feathers’ – a  Native Sons and Daughters Club –  held their their annual Pinewood Derby in the Heritage gym.

Avon Mayor Bryan Jensen judged the Best Design by age group and kicked off the event as a day of fun ensued along the 64-foot long, 12-foot high hand-built track. The track is twice the length of an average Pinewood track, and cars reached scale speeds of over 320 mph. Precise computer-controlled sensors were used to correctly record all the race times.

Two Feathers is a group of parents from Avon, Avon Lake, North Ridgeville, Sheffield, Sheffield Lake, Westlake, and Bay Village that get together with their children to enjoy fun and rewarding adventures as individual families, and as one big family.

They plan and then participate in fun events with their kids including cabin camping, sleepovers at places like the Lake Erie Crushers stadium, Buffalo Navy Shipyard, Cleveland Science Museum and the zoo, as well as many other single day activities, including Sky Zone, Cosmic Bowling, skating, rock climbing, zip lining, archery, hiking, horseback riding, canoeing and of course, the annual Pinewood Derby! It is a descendant program of Indian Guides and Princesses.
