Cubmobile Runs for Fun! 

Location: Verona Park Sledding Hill 

Saturday, August, 11th 
10:00 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) of the Pack 32 Cubmobiles.  Feel free to bring a non-scout friend!

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).

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.
