Raingutter Regatta

Today was the Raingutter Regatta for Tucker's Cub Scout Pack! I wasn't sure what to expect but it is basically a scaled-down version of the Pinewood Derby but with boats! They fill 2 raingutters with water and then the boys have to blow their boats down the gutter! Here are all the boats ready to go:

Each den races against the boys in their den until they come out with a winner. Tucker won his first race against Timmy:

Then it was down to him and Jared-if Tucker won, they would be tied and then would switch gutters. Tucker won this one

So they switched gutters and Jared won, which mean Tucker came in second! Still not too bad!
