Cubmobile Race

Date: Sunday, May 16, 2010
Setup: 10:30am - Noon
Race: Noon - 3:00pm

Dear Scouts and Parents,

The most fun and exciting event is almost upon us, the Cubmobile Race will be held on Sunday, May 16th from Noon-3 PM. The Scouts of Pack 1776 will be racing their dens' Cubmobile from the top of the ramp… then being launched by the power of gravity… with nerves of steel… steering their Cubmobile across the finish line… and occasionally… at the end… remembering to HIT THE BRAKE!! This is a timed event, every Scout will race at least twice, and everyone wins a medal for participating. The Scouts LOVE this event and we hope to see you ALL on the race day. if you love racing in real cars, take a look at this 1958 chevrolet apache.

Attached are some of the race car design specifics:

* In contrast with the Pinewood Derby, it is o.k. to recycle old cubmobile carcasses from prior years if your den has access to one.
* Tires must be 10 inches or less in diameter.
* Any rubber tires are acceptable (hard rubber or pneumatic) EXCEPT bicycle tires. Bicycle tires and rims are not safe for this event!
* Wheels may incorporate wheel bearings.
* Any axel type is acceptable for this event (if used, lag screws should be at least 3/8in dia. and 3.5 inches long)
* All framing used in constructing the car should be maximum 2inX4in.
* The turning radius of the cubmobile MUST BE LIMITED by a means such as blocks located less than ½-inch from the frame on the steering arm.
* No additional weights may be added to the cars for the purpose of gaining momentum. Make the car strong enough to survive the race, but adding extra weights is not safe for the drivers or the poor dads at the finish line who have to stop the cars. Additional weights will be removed.
* Don’t have any sharp objects on the car that could impale the driver or a spectator.
* All cars must have a brake.
* All cars must have a seat belt.
* All racers must wear a helmet.
* Decorate the cars as much as you can! Building cars is a tall order for especially the little guys, but painting and decorating them is fun for everyone!

Volunteers are needed and your Den Leaders will be contacting you!
