Central Fall 2010 Cuboree
Old Lexington Airport; Lexington, TN.
$8 for Registered Scouts and $8 for Registered Leaders
Our first camping opportunity of the new Scout year is coming up fast!
You must register with the Cubmaster for Cuboree on or before our next Den Meeting on 9/13! (no walk-ons will be allowed).
Cost is $8 per registered Cub Scout and registered Adult Leaders. Parents and siblings do not need to pay.
Cuboree is usually a nice laid-back introduction to camping for our new Scouts. The whole family is welcome. Come join us!
Activities will include a Soap Box Derby race and a home-made Kite Derby. See below for the Kite Derby rules – start making your kite now!
Cub Scouts must camp with a parent. We will camp together as a Pack, and have Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast as a Pack – the Cubmaster will coordinate.
The Pack will supply the cooking gear, fire supplies, lanterns, an awning, and other items that we will all use as a Pack.
Personal camping gear and equipment are the responsibility of each camper. Clothes suitable for fall weather should be worn. Personal gear should include tent, a ground cloth/tarp, air mattress, sleeping bag (blankets, sheets, pillow), flashlight (extra batteries), canteen/water bottle, change of clothes, rain coat/poncho, gloves and extra socks.

Kite Derby Rules
- All kites must be parent-son made to enter the contest. Store bought kites will not be allowed in the contest but may be flown. We strongly encourage parent son involvement.
- Each scout may have an adult to help him get the kite into the air and help catch it when it comes down.
- No restrictions on materials used in the construction of kites, except that no fighting kites are allowed. (Glass, razor blades, and metal are not permitted.)
- No wire flight lines are permitted.
- Kites may be adjusted and modified any time during the derby.
Preflight judging will be done for design and workmanship, and prizes will be awarded for:
- Smallest, largest, most unique, best craftsmanship and the best decorated 100th anniversary theme
Inflight judging will be presented for:
- First kite in the air, highest after 5 minutes, most stable flying, best sportsmanship, most persistent scout
Kites can be made from many different materials. (dowels, dry weeds are very lightweight, newspaper, tissue paper, water thinned glue to attach paper to frame, string or fishing line) Lighter is usually better and the overall balance is important. We will allow pins to be used to tie together the framework of the kite.
Categories for judging will include: (1) Best entree- Kabobs and (2) Best Dessert- Apple or Peach dessert (no cobblers). All food must be cooked over open fire or charcoal. (use of propane or electricity not allowed). Awards will be given for 1st and 2nd place in EACH division.
This is a non-smoking event. No pets, please.
