Join us for a very special celebration for veterans, combined with a boat race! In a Rain Gutter Regatta, sailboats built from kits and hand decorated are raced down a length of water-filled “rain gutters” powered by the Cub Scout using a pump of fan to blow the sail.
Each Cub Scout races in several heats, and the fastest time of all heats determines the winner. There will be a first, second and third place awards and a special award for the most “Patriotic” boat voted on by the veterans in attendance.
Activities will open with a flag opening ceremony conducted by veterans and the Scouts BSA Troop 128, before the race. Awards will be given out at the end of the race. Followed by a campfire and formal flag retirement ceremony.
- DATE: Friday, November 11th (Veterans’ Day)
- PLACE: Klug Hall found in the St. Vincent’s Church on 21 Rosary Road in New Martinsville.
- TIME: Flag Ceremony begins at 6:00pm
- TO BRING: Completed and decorated Rain Gutter boats (kits can be purchased at the Scout Shop)
- COST: $5 entry fee

The Environmental Protection Agency, as part of a public awareness campaign to celebrate its first 50 years, has partnered with the Boy Scouts of America to create an award for members of troops, crews and ships. This new award will recognize youth who research and learn about the subjects of human health and the environment, as the EPA develops its vision for the next 50 years. The objective of the EPA award is to combine a variety of disciplines to challenge and educate youth; introduce them to the breadth of the EPA’s involvement in environmental protection and conservation; and encourage them to research, investigate, experiment, demonstrate, survey, and study air pollution, water pollution, solid and hazardous waste, and ocean dumping.
