Pinewood Derby

I wrote this program when my boys were in cub scouts to make it quicker to enter times and generate the winner reports for the Pinewood Derby races, an annual Cub Scout event.

The forms are designed to be FAST!  … so the scouts participating in the Pinewood Derby don't have to wait a long time for the adults to key in the times and figure out who the winners are. The first time we used the Access program, the event ended a couple hours earlier than the previous year which had used Excel.

There is not a requirement for an electronic timer on the track -- but if you have one, the code can be modified to get the times for each lane.
Attached is a zip file with:
1. Pinewood_081011_8p.mdb -- Access 2000 database
2. Pinewood.doc -- Word Documentation
There is sample data so you can practice using the database before the big day!  When it is time to delete the sample records, open tables in this order and delete all the records:

1. Times
2. Cars
3. Divisions

Feedback is appreciated, thank you
