Popcorn Show and Sell Sign Ups

posted Sep 15, 2019, 7:44 AM by Admin Pack 32

Did you know it costs the pack about $200 per scout, per year, to run the program? We collect 50% of that from dues, and rely on the Popcorn and Wreath sales to cover the other 50%. This means that we need an average of $300 of Popcorn/Wreaths sold by each scout. 

Please sign up for at least one time-slot for the Popcorn Show and Sells by visiting

Thank you.

Cubmobile Racing, Saturday 8/10

posted Aug 3, 2019, 1:01 PM by Admin Pack 32

Cubmobile Races at Memorial Park   

Location: Maplewood Memorial Park Amphitheater   

Saturday, August, 10th  
09:00 AM - 12:00 PM   


BRING: water bottle, closed toe shoes, bicycle helmet  
WEAR: Class B T-Shirt (Leaders, Scouts, and adults if you have one)  
This event is friendly, non-competitive racing of Cubmobiles (soap box derby style racers) that each of the Packs have built. All Cubs will get the opportunity to "feel the need for speed" as they use gravity to "race" down the hill at Memorial Park in Maplewood (after a brief test to make sure that they can properly control the vehicle). We will use all available cars and match up cars and drivers with each race. Cub Scouts may invite other youth who may be interested in Cub Scouts to attend this event.  All are welcome to attend!  Parental assistance will be needed with set up, monitoring racing lanes, test drives, working with youth waiting to race, keeping all Cubs and siblings away from the race course when Cubmobiles are in motion, cleanup, etc. 


8:00am - 9:00am: leader/parent arrival and setup (we need people to arrive early to help set up) 

9:00am - Noon: driver safety testing and racing

12:00 - 12:30pm: breakdown and cleanup


Cubs must wear closed toe shoes (sneakers or hiking shoes are best). Avoid shoes which could easily fly off or cause the feet to slip while driving.

Cubs must wear a safety helmet when driving one of the Cubmobiles. Cubs are encouraged to bring a helmet with them that fits properly (a bike helmet will work fine; alternatively a baseball batting helmet, football helmet, or motocross helmet will also work).

Please note that elbow pads, wrist guards, knee pads, safety goggles, thigh pads, driving gloves, and shoulder pads are all optional...:-)=> Cubs will have the opportunity to practice in the Cubmobiles before racing down the big hill. 

Cubs must demonstrate that they can stop the car using the hand brake before they will be allowed to race down the hill. Cubs must not try to use their feet to stop - the Cubmobiles will pick-up a fair amount of speed coming down the hill and the "Fred Flintstone"/"Barney Rubble" approach is not going to work! Worse than that, the Cub can seriously hurt a foot or ankle so we need to ensure that they MUST USE THE HAND BRAKE TO STOP.
