The Raingutter Regatta
The Raingutter Regatta is a racing event for Cub Scouts using balsa wood sailboats the boys build from a kit. Within the basic design rules, Scouts are free to build and decorate their sailboats as they choose. The boats are raced in a standard 10-foot rain gutter placed on a table and filled with water. The boats are propelled by each Scout blowing on his sail. The first boat to reach the end of the gutter is the winner. The overall winner is determined by a double-elimination tournament.
The Pinewood Derby
The Pinewood Derby is one of the most popular and memorable programs in Cub Scouts.
The Scout, with help from a parent, builds a wooden race car from a kit. Parents and siblings
are welcome to build their own cars as well. Pack 11 has a Pinewood Derby workshop to build the cars. The Pinewood Derby is held on a Friday evening. It is a festive event for the whole
Pack. The gravity-powered cars are raced down a large race track with computerized timing.
Trophies are awarded for racing and design winners. All racers have pizza during the race and sold to race fans.
The Blue and Gold Banquet
Today, the Blue and Gold banquet is one of the highlights of the program year. It brings
Together our Pack's families for a dinner and an evening of fun. The meal is important, but even more important is the warm, congenial atmosphere created as families enjoy each other's company.
