Cub Pack 209, Trachsville, recently held its Raingutter Regatta at the Palmerton Rod and Gun Club.
Winners were Emerson Rotella, Siblings Winner; Billy Drake, Bears Winner; Tristan Stano, Wolves Winner; Josiah Kimmel, Tigers Winner; Mason George, Webelos 2 Winner; Logan Kresge, Webelos 1 Winner; and Grand Champion, Michael Burnett, Kids Choice Winner.
The Pack holds one of these races every year in January, taking turns between the Raingutter Regatta, the Space Derby, and the Pinewood Derby.
The different age groups (dens) compete against each other, then the winner of each den competes for the Grand Champion.
There is also a Kids Choice Winner which the scouts select by voting for their favorite boat, car, or rocket. The scouts craft their racers with a little help from their parents.
Trophies are awarded to the winners. A great time is had by all, and scouts are reminded that as long as they follow the Cub Scout Motto of "Do Your Best" they are all winners.
Cub Pack 209 is chartered to Jerusalem United Church of Christ in Trachsville.
