Rain Gutter Regatta

Trevor totally loves cub scouts.  It is so cute to see him carefully going through his scout book learning knots and seeing what other things he can accomplish to pass them off.  He was thrilled to participate in his first Rain Gutter Regatta.  It is similar to the pinewood derby, but instead the boys make boats and race them by blowing them along the length of a rain-gutter filled with water.

Trev did most of the work himself and had a really fun time doing it.  I was glad he likes building them so much because there is no guarantee of how well they will perform. This experience turned out much better than the pinewood derby (his pinewood derby car came in close to last place although you wouldn't know it, he was just so excited to build the car and get to race it) and his boat came in first and he had the fastest times out of all the boats raced that day.  Most importantly, he had a BLAST doing it.

Way to go Trev!
