Becky - regatta feedback
Wed, 10-31-2012 - 11:34am

We hold our regatta at the same time as the ice cream social.  The boys decorate their boats, race by den, and then make their sundaes and eat.  We don't have any type of awards for the race. 

If you have enough people to help it might be fun to set up a few game stations ie cup stacking races (the small solo cups work if you don't have the "real" stackers), cake walk but use cookies, bean bag toss or corn hole.  Of course, you can over the top and give it all a pirate or ocean theme :)  We had a face painting station one year when we had a pirate themed meeting.  Some boy scouts came and painted skulls on the boys' faces.
