2018 Raingutter Regatta

2018 Raingutter Regatta

Parents and Leaders,

The annual Pack 197 Raingutter Regatta race is scheduled for Sunday, July 29 from 3-6 p.m. This is such a fun summer event that includes the trimaran race and a potluck. It will also be our last opportunity to earn July’s summertime pack award. Here are the details to participate:

Purchase a regatta boat. I have 25 boats that can be paid for in cash, check or paypal.me/RaingutterRegatta and picked up at my house. The boats are $6.44 each including tax. Regatta boats can also be purchased from the Scout Store or online. The Scout Shop is located at 807 Kinnear Road.

Scouts shape and finish/paint the boat according to their design and instructions (see attached tips). Bring a gallon or other large jug of water to help fill the raingutter. Siblings can participate in a separate race at the end. Come on Sunday, July 29 to have a great time! Please note — we are at a NEW location this year: McNamara Park!
