Raingutter Regatta October 30, 2008

Filed under: Cub Scouts — Melissa @ 6:32 pm

Our Cub Scout Pack had a Regatta last Saturday. My kids were so excited! Last year our pack in Virginia did a Pinewood Derby and the kids had a great time making their cars and then racing them. The Regatta Kits are boats..with rudders and sails. They painted them and put them together. The kits are nice and easy..right up my alley. Though I did nothing. Ha! Roy worked with them.

The Raingutters are filled with water and 2 boys race at a time. They blow on their sails and race the boats to the end of the gutters. It was a double elimination and then some. The boys got to race lots and lots!

Matthew won first place in his den. Samantha won first place out of the siblings. Alex had to be held up to race. It was so cute!! All the kids had a great time and it was fun to cheer everyone on.

You can see our Cubmaster in the background. She has a costume for everything! Our Scout Hut is a good sized warehouse building. It’s wonderful to have a place to have meetings and all of the various events. No reserving a space…no major setting up and taking down…it’s all right there. We’re very thankful for it!

    I’d much rather do that than Pine Wood Derby. NOT looking forward to shaping those cars this year…
