Cub Scouts race features balsa boats

May 03, 2006

SMITHSBURG - Cub Scout Pack 14 held their annual Raingutter Regatta Derby on April 10 at Smithsburg Elementary School.

The Cub Scouts shaped and/or painted and decorated balsa wood as each boy made his boat.

For the races, two lengths of gutter were set side by side and filled with water. When a race began, each contestant blew on his boat, making it sail to the other end of the gutter.

The top finishers, shown left to right, were Patrick Riker, first place; Isaac Stottlemeyer, second place; and Nathaniel Craig, third place.

The event was chaired by Steve Hendrix with the assistance of Bill Riker, Doug Leas and Ann Riker. Boy Scouts Timmy Martin and Jesse Thompson were the line judges.
