Bring a Friend - Share the Fun!
All friends and family are welcome to our next pack meeting on Thursday. This one's going to be fun for everyone. Scouts and thier friends will receive a boat building kit that they'll assemble and decorate. Then they'll use a straw to provide "wind" power, racing them down a 10 foot length of water-filled gutter.

The races will be run 'for fun', and no rankings or prizes will be awarded - simply an opportunity to get together as a group, build boats, and give them try. Just for the fun of it!
