Pack 197 – Raingutter Regatta
Hello Parents and Leaders,

The annual Pack 197 Raingutter Regatta race is scheduled for Friday, August 21 from 3-5p.m. This is such a fun summer event that includes the trimaran race and a potluck. 

Purchase a regatta boat. We have 15’ish boats that can be paid for in cash or PayPal me and picked up at the O’Bryan house. The boats are $6.00 each. 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). This is A LOT easier than pinewood derby cars. Sign up to bring a potluck dish on this sign up genius, TBD. Bring a gallon or other large jug of water to help fill the raingutters. Siblings can participate in a separate race at the end. Come on to have a great time! 

Looking forward to seeing everyone. If you have any questions, please contact Sarah O’Bryan.
