Summer Soaker 2017 took place on the grounds of Shades Valley Lutheran Church and it was a big hit again. The weather was always going to be an issue and with the rain we had been having over the past week or so, this Cubmaster did not think we would be able to pull the event off. We woke up to an overcast sky and a forecast that called for rain during the middle of the event which would turn it into a true Soaker.

The super slide was constructed on the side of the hill. The inflatable slide was inflated with no surprise holes and the pools filled with water. Cubs and siblings started showing up and the sun came out! We had great participation and everyone had a great time. At lunch, we fired up the grill and made hot dogs. The soaker was over at 1 pm and the adults took down the slides and pools to be stored until this time next year.

This was a July event for the Summertime Activity Pins. Cubs who showed up AND came to an event in June are in line to receive their Summertime activity pins once they participate in an August event.

Thanks to all the adults who helped put this event on and stayed to take down the slides. We couldn’t do it without you.
