The October pack meeting is a favorite around Pack 95. It is the meeting that we have our annual Raingutter Regatta at SVLC. The scouts have been given kitsat the September meeting and they have spent the last month building and customizing their sailboats. This is a very simple build so it gives the new scouts a chance to make something of their own with just a little help from Mom and Dad.
The competition was fierce. Each scout has to blow on the sales of their boat to get it to the end of the gutter. Most boys won at least one race but at the end of the competition only the top three from each den and top three overall won an award. Congratulations to all of them!
October is also a favorite meeting because the new Scouts usually earn their Bobcat award by this meeting. The Tigers and their Mother’s participated in a ceremony where everyone had their faces painted. Congratulations to our new Bobcats!
