Raingutter Regatta

Boy Scouts teaches character. One of they ways they do this is through friendly competition. Tuesday was our Pack’s Raingutter Regatta. The boys make boats then “sail” them in real rain gutters filled with water.

The event started with a wonder picnic of Subway submarine sandwiches. Very fitting for a regatta.

The race is accomplished by the boys blowing on the sails. They are not allowed to touch the boats except to right it if it capsizes.

Part of the fun is cheering on all the participants.

The first, second and third place for each Den receives a medal. Every participant gets a patch for their brag vest.

The finale is a huge sunday that fills two raingutters with icecream, chocolate sauce, whipped cream and sprinkles.

No cheating and starting before everyone else. On your marks, get set, go!
