2006 Wet n' Wild Card Board Boat Regatta!
200 Southern Missouri District Folk showed up at the SW Division Pow Wow and enjoyed the biggest card board boat regatta yet! We started off Friday night with outpost showing up and setting up camp. The Division rented 10 sites on the lake and we were positioned right on the cove at the regatta site. The men and boys from 8 outposts camped over night in tents and several other outposts camped in other sites in the campground with their church famlies. Then after dark we all attended a neat inspiring council fire by Rob Batchman and enjoyed the Christian fellowship. Camps were active with campfires and some of the best camping could be hear all around.
Saturday we had a record 27 boat entries. Over 90 boys and some young ladies participated in the Race part of the Regatta there were many more leaders and parents that help build boats and see to it all that needed done got done! We had a great time and lots of video and pictures were taken.
SW Division Commander Norm Kirsch cooked up some of the best gourmet hot dogs and smoked beans and chips and drinks for the hungry regatta attenders. We had all kinds of staff and Royal Ranger Leaders helping in many tasks.
1400 water balloons were filled and lobbed at our right foot of
Christian fellowship brothers and sisters in Christ!
