Mike, Dave and all:
Our pack has run Raingutter for a number of years and for the last two
years have been asked by the District to run it at EXPO.
We give out our kits the pack meeting prior to when we going to run.
Then we ask the boys to make them into catamarans then decorate them to
the theme of the month.
We run 6 lanes set on saw horses, and instead of making the boys blow we
have three electric fans set at the end of the gutters . They are
plugged into a power strip that has an on off switch. The boats are set
and the boys racing get to count down to power up.
That way we can run a double elimanation heat for 120 boys in one
night. About 2 hours.
We also have judging for theme and design as well as the winners. Great
fun for all.
Hope this helps,
