At the November 13 Pack meeting our cub scouts participated in the annual Raingutter Regatta. Each of our cubs is given a boat kit that they take home and build with their moms, dads or other family member. They bring back their customized boats and compete against each other by blowing into the boat’s sails and race down a rain gutter. The boys have a great time competing against each other and it gives them the opportunity to get a little practice building something before we have our Pinewood Derby race at the beginning of the year.
Before the race, we awarded our new cubs with the Bobcat award. This is the first award a new scout must earn before they move on to the award for their grade such as Tiger or Wolf. Congratulations on these boys, and mothers, make sure you wear your ribbon to the ceremony where they earn their next rank award.
