Nov. Pack Meeting - Rain Gutter Regatta

posted Nov 3, 2016, 7:56 PM by Matt Wagner
This meeting is our Rain Gutter Regatta, where our scouts will be building a boat at the meeting and racing them against other scouts in their den. Please try to arrive around 6:00 so you have time to build your boats. Also, our registered Lion scouts will be joining us for the fun, so please remind your scout to be a good host to our younger participants.

We will also have some first aid and rescue stations set up as a rotation, and that’s where I could use your help. We will have a total of 7 stations (including the regatta) where I will need a few parent volunteers to assist in explaining 1st aid or a rescue technique to the scouts and have them try it. The rotations will be set for 10 minutes, then the scouts in that group will move to the next station, with their den leader, and you’ll see a new group of scouts and repeat the same thing you just taught. We will have all supplies and instructions at the meeting. If you can help, please sign up here:

The stations are:

1.       Regatta Judge

2.       1st Aid - Cuts and burns

3.       What goes in a 1st Aid Kit?

4.       Water Safety

5.       Blanket Stretchers

6.       Applying a Band-Aid

7.       What to do if someone’s hurt.
