Cub Scouts Raingutter Regatta

On Saturday, Peter participated in his 4th Raingutter Regatta.

I was a good mom and blogged about them here, here, and here.

And since I'm still a good mom, I'm going to blog about it again!

If you look at that first link (and if you do, will you please note how young my little 1st grader looked?) you will see that Peter and Dan went for style over speed and they lost. 

After that, they decided they didn't care how the boat looked they just wanted it to be fast.  This year was no different but they finally built a winner!

Peter got a first place medal out of the Weblos 1 group!  He raced hard in the championship heats but didn't place.  But he was okay with that.  The trophy for winning Weblos 1 seemed to be enough for him.  Plus, he could see how smoking fast the other boats were and he knew he didn't have a chance against a couple of those.

Peter and Dan analyzed the Grand Prize winning boat and I think they are going to "borrow" some things they learned for next year's boat.
