This is a FUN (no pressure, no brackets!) race with the focus on building a CREATIVE, cool, and sea-worthy boat out of recycled materials.

Scouts propel their boats by blowing air into their boat's sail with a straw. No pushing, no motors! Pool noodle pieces will be provided as the base for your boat.

Please bring any materials you can.  We will have extra supplies and duct tape.
Can your creation make it all the way down the raingutter?
Challenge your friend to a race!
After the race, we will turn the rain gutters into a GIANT build-your-own-
sundae bar!!!

Remember, if your scout attends 3 of our 4 Summer Pack Events
(Stough Canyon Nature Center, Pool Party, Raingutter Regatta, and Disc Golf Fundraiser) he will earn the Summertime Pack Award. They MUST sign in on the event's sign-in sheet so we count them!

Reminder: Scout Night at Dodger Stadium is Sept 9th. Our pack is buying bulk tickets, details to come, watch your email. Ticket order deadline is July 31st.

The cards will be available on April 10 from your den leader if you want any (one for yourself or some to sell, they easily pay for themselves). First come, first served.  :)
