Anchors Aweigh! DON'T DELAY!!!!!

Pack 12's July Summertime Activity will be a true-blue Raingutter Regatta.

Each Scout will be responsible to purchase his own Raingutter Regatta kit from the Scout Shop (or elsewhere) as seen here: http://www.scoutstuff.org/regatta-trimaran-kit.html#.WVKMGf8rKUk. It can be the the single hull, trimaran as seen in the link or any other hull design offered in the kits. You may purchase other kits online or from area hobby stores as long as they meet the rules found in the link below.

Rules can be found on the Pack 12 website (https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=sites&srcid=ZGVmYXVsdGRvbWFpbnxwYWNrMTJvbG9tfGd4OjczYjVhZDI1MWM3ZGMxMDc). HOWEVER, I must stress that this is not meant to be as intense as the Pinewood Derby. We will check for general compliance with the rules, but because there is no District Race on the line, we need not be as stringent. We merely want our Scouts to "Do Your Best" and have fun. 

We have the pavillion reserved, so there should be enough shaded area for the races and family members to get out of the sun. Of course, the splash pad should be available as sideline entertainment between races, and we intend to serve some cool watermelon. Please RSVP so we know how much to buy.

COST: Pack 12 will pick up the cost of the pavilion rental and watermelon. Scouts need only pay for their regatta kits.
WEAR: Class B T-shirts with swim trunks (bring sunscreen and towels for splash pad) 

Any updates will be posted to the Scoutbook Event Description or Comment Section. Please check back and ask questions there.

Scouts who attend all three Summertime Activities earn a pin for their uniform (awarded in September). Dens with 50% attendance at all three events earn a ribbon for their den flag. Don't miss!!

God bless you, your Scouts, and your families.
