Way to Go, Son#2!
Today, Son#2's Cub Scout Pack held a "raingutter regatta" boat race. Each scout was given a balsa wood boat kit several weeks ago to decorate and assemble. Today they raced the boats. The two racing "lanes" consisted of two 10-foot length of gutters, capped at the ends. The kids powered their boats by blowing on them (some cub scout packs use straws, ours blew directly on the boats). Out of 18-20 scouts, Son#2 came in 3rd place over all for speed. He got a nice little trophy. I always knew the kid was full of hot air! ;-)
