Elks and Scouting

Cub Ranks

The Elks have a long standing relationship with both the Girls Scouts and Boy Scouts, including the Cubs. Henderson/Green Valley Elks sponsors Cub Pack 304. The Pack consist of approximately 55 boys and 13 fully trained adults. Throughout the year we work with the Pack in a number of functions. The Space Derby, the Pine Wood Derby, the Rain Gutter Regatta, the Blue and Gold dinner, the Flag Day Cerenony and the Flag Retirement Ceremony to name a few. We contribute in both time and money each year affording us a very rewarding partnership.

Space Derby

The Space Derby is a Cub Scouting event in the United State of America that is similar to the pinewood derby car race. Cub scouts race miniature balsa wood rockets that are powered by two rubber bands and propeller -- that travel along a heavy monofilament fishing line. The rockets are carved by the boys, with the guidance of their parents and other family members. See the Lodge calendar for the next scheduled derby.

Pine Wood Derby

The pinewood derby is a racing event for Cub Scouts in the Boy Scouts of America. Cub Scouts, with the help of parents, build their own cars from wood, usually from kits containing a block of pine, plastic wheels and metal axles. The cars are also judge for best of shown by the Lodge Members. See the Lodge calendar for the next schedule derby.

Rain Gutter Regatta

The rain gutter regatta is a Cub Scouting annual event in the United States of America that is the sailboat equivalent of the pinewood derby. The sailboat kit consists of a seven-inch long balsa wood hull, a 6-1/2 inch mast, plastic sail, plastic rudder, and metal keel. Within the basic design rules, Scouts are free to paint and decorate their sailboats as they choose. Modifications for speed include the placement of the keel and rudder and the size, shape and location of the sail. A catamaran is an exceptionally fast design, although this modification is not allowed in all races.

The boats are raced in a standard rain gutter that is ten feet long, placed on a table - saw horses, and filled to the top with water. The boats are propelled by blowing on the sail, either directly - through a drinking straw; the boat cannot be touched with hands or the straw. The first boat to reach the end of the gutter is the winner. The overall winner is determined by an elimination system. See the Lodge calendar for the next scheduled race.

Flag Retirement Ceremony

The Flag Retirement Ceremony is performed annually with the greatest respect by both the Scouts and the Officers of Henderson/Green valley Lodge. At the conclusion of the Elks ceremony the Scouts prepare to deliver the Flags for retirement. The Colors are presented with solemn respect they deserve. The Scouts then perform the proper disposal of the service worn Flags. This is one of the most moving ceremonies to be performed. For the next scheduled Flag Retirement Ceremony please check the Lodge calendar.

At the conclusion of the Elks Flag Day ceremony the Lodge awards one Policeman ans one Fireman for service above and beyond the call of duty to the commnunity. The Colors are presented with solemn respect they deserve by the Cub Scouts. For the next scheduled Flag Day - Law & Order function please check the Lodge calendar.
