Cubmobile 2018

posted Oct 15, 2018, 10:20 AM by Pack Webmaster   [ updated Oct 19, 2018, 8:44 AM ]

The next Pack Meeting is our annual cubmobile race. This is similar to a soapbox derby. Cars are provided to the Dens but YOU MUST BRING A BIKE HELMET for the safety of all riders. 

Boys take turns riding and pushing across the racetrack

Please wear your pack t-shirt instead of your uniforms. Things fly everywhere once we start racing!

Location is Westchester Academy 901 Yorkchester dr 77079.

Park in the South parking lot for easier access to the running track.

The race is at 4PM but many dens are meeting early, so please check with your den leader.

There is no shade at this location, so you are encouraged to bring your camping chairs, drinks and pop-up Covers, if you have them.

A short meeting will be conducted at the end of the races to give advancement and racing awards.

Please review the rules prior to the race.


Save time on race day and Download the Race waiver NOW!
