Cub Scout Day Camp - Save The Dates

Posted on Feb 4 2016 - 11:40pm

SAVE THE DATES....

The Cardinal District Cub Scout Day Camp has been scheduled for the week of June 20th - 24th at Deep Run Park. This is a day only camp that begins at 8:30 and ends at 4:30 (end time is 1:00 on Friday - to be confirmed). It is an awesome opportunity for scouts to experience many activities and have a ton of fun. Additionally, there will be opportunities to complete requirements for rank badges.   

The Cardinal District staff is finalizing details and more information, including registration and cost, will be provided as it becomes available.

IMPORTANT: In order for scouts from Pack 788 to participate in Day Camp, we need a parent to volunteer as our Day Camp Coordinator. Without a coordinator, our scouts can not register. Please contact Tom Tyler (tr.tyler@ymail.com) if you are willing to be our coordinator. The responsibilities of the coordinator  are easy and only last for a short period of time. Please consider this opportunity to help in offering our scouts the best Cub Scout experience possible.

RACE OPERATIONS & ITEMS TO KEEP IN MIND:

Round One – Each of the following Groups (5) will race amongst each other;

      Tigers * Wolfs * Bears * Webelos I * Webelos II

Round Two – The top 3 cars from each group will advance to race in this round (15 cars in total)

Round Three – Placement Round – The top 3 cars from Round 2 will advance to race in this round (3 cars in total) to determine 1st, 2nd, 3rd for the Pack.

At a minimum each car will race in each of the four lanes.  Race times will be accumulated, adding up the three best times (dropping the slowest time) and that total will be used to determine advancement.

No one will be able to handle any cars during the race, except for instances listed below.  Only race starters, race runners and officials will be able to handle cars.

If a car jumps off the track, the heat will be run again. If the same car jumps off the track a second time, it will automatically be placed into the “Repair Zone” in which the participant will have 5 minutes to repair and return to the race.  If the car can’t return to the race within the 5 minutes it is automatically disqualified.

If a car leaves its lane and interferes with another car, the heat will be run again. If the same car leaves its lane a second time and interferes with another car, it will automatically be placed into the “Repair Zone” in which the participant will have 5 minutes to repair and return to the race.  If the car can’t return to the race within the 5 minutes it is automatically disqualified.

If a car suffers a mechanical problem, it will automatically be placed into the “Repair Zone” in which the participant will have 5 minutes to repair and return to the race.  If the car can’t return to the race within the 5 minutes it is automatically disqualified. Race Commissioner will have the final ruling on determining that the car suffered a mechanical problem.

All cars that enter the “Repair Zone” must pass inspection by the Race Commissioner before it will be allowed to compete again.

In the unlikely event of a tie, those two cars will run one race, flipping a coin to determine lane selection, to determine the placement of next round or final placement.

 

Siblings, Parents & Leaders Racing

 

Round One – Each of the following Groups (2) will race amongst each other;

 

              Siblings * Parents & Leaders

 

Round Two – The top 2 cars from each group will advance to race in this round (4 cars in total)

 

Round Three – Final Round – The top car from Round 2 will be the winner.

 

All other rules from Scouts Racing apply to these races.
