Federation Event: Raingutter Regatta & Not-so-late-night swim

February 06, 2018


Join us for a night of boat racing fun and swimming on Saturday 2/10 from 5-8 pm."

When: Saturday 2/10, 5-8 pm
Where: Kroehler Family YMCA

What: Join us for our annual raingutter regatta plus a not-so-late night swim!

For those who are new to this event, purchase a Regatta kit from a local store (e.g. Hobby Lobby, The Chalkboard), assemble it, paint it and race it.  The assembly is very easy and can literally be done in minutes.  How much effort is put into the painting is up to you.  The racing is one of the most fun parts.  We fill up two raingutters with water and kids race their boats side by side.  The boats are powered by blowing at their sails using a straw.  Be careful, you blow too hard and you might have to abandon ship!  

Plus, this year we will enjoy a not-so-late-night swim in the Kroehler pool! Starting at 6:15 pm, we will have the pool and the giant inflatable to ourselves. Kids and adults alike can climb, splash and play the evening away!

There will be pizza, snacks & drinks for us to enjoy throughout the evening.  Pre-registration is strongly advised so we can be sure to have enough food for all who are attending.

Patches will be ordered and distributed after the event. 

Cost per person: $8
