Blowing The Competition Out Of The Water!

Tonight Zachary participated in his first ever Cub Scout Raingutter Regatta! We did some research online and found a cool boat design that we thought would do pretty well. Zachary did a very nice job putting the boat together, and he had a really good time racing!

Blowing his boat down the gutter...

Zachary was doing really well during his races, and he hadn't lost a race, so one of the leaders tried to give the other guy a fighting chance by preventing Zachary from blowing his boat down!
Zachary won 1st place, and he didn't lose a single race! The first prize was a cool Cub Scout T-shirt!

You know Scouts is my calling. I think we are planning the regatta for the fall, and a bike rodeo too. The 23rd of July is in Puyallup right for the park, that would be a closer one for us to go to. I would love to make sure there were some of kids friends there too. I was also toying the idea of going to Mud Mt Dam once too this summer, but that would be like almost a 2 hour drive! Nutty. But I will email you as it gets closer...

Great job, Zack! What a fun kid. That is a funny photo of Dennis covering Zack's face, and he STILL won! How fun.

Wow - that's amazing - great job! I'm glad our pack only does the pinewood derby - those boats and rockets are not as easy to make as they look.
