Cubs District Soapbox Derby 2019

soapbox 2019What a packed event with 73 Cubs attending and 23 teams racing.

It was busy, a bit chaotic and karts everywhere. A big thank you to all the leaders who gave up their time to make this event happen.
It was a dry day but a bit over cast but the rain kept away. The biggest upset was for the leaders when the electric urn decided to give up the ghost and die. No more tea and coffee for the rest of the day.

A few of the newer groups to the event found out that their Karts were not quite up to the challenge and a number of wheels went astray. But there were plenty of carts to borrow and it did not stop the fun. Be prepared is the moto for next year. Kart building techniques were learnt by some.

This was some comments from 3rd Rainham Cubs about the event “had a blast” “it's amazing” “fantastic great fun” “Thanks for having us” that is telling it all, the Cubs had a good time.

A big thank you to Nelms School for allowing us to use the playground and facilities.

With so many Cubs attending we had to drop some races as we did not have enough time to get them all in.

Lets see if we can have even more Cubs for next Year with three races running at the same time. Cub leaders and parents get building those karts.
