Pack Ski Trip, Cyber Chip, and Raingutter Regatta

On Saturday, February 24, Pack 2187 went skiing! Cub Scouts and their families traveled together to Zare Lazarevski Ski Center in the Mavorvo National Park for a fun-filled day on the slopes. With the help of experienced ski instructors, the Scouts learned skiing fundamentals and how to stay safe on the mountain. Special thanks to Arben and Val Jusufi for organizing and supporting this enjoyable winter event! On Sunday, March 11, With the help of their Akelas (parents), Cub Scouts earned their Cyber Chip, by learning internet safety best practices and how to be responsible online. The Scouts also sang songs about preparing for the Raingutter Regatta. Then, Cub Scouts shared with the Pack the importance of water and how we must work to conserve this precious resource. On your mark, get set, BLOW! With tremendous help from our Pack Committee Chair and Flotilla Admiral, Kris Mitchell, and other adult leaders, we launched our third annual Raingutter Regatta. Cub Scouts built and decorated their trimarans and learned about good sportsmanship. Cub Scouts received awards for their workmanship and the creativity of their vessels. The Cub Scouts raced their "lung-powered" sailboats through a series of race heats; then each den winner raced in the Pack Championship. Jac (Bear) came in third and a new Scout, Lukas (Wolf), was second. While Justin (Webelos) with the fastest boat was first! Congratulations to all our Scouts! Following are some photos from the mountain and the regatta.
