Re: What do you think ? rules / regs/ building

"THE BOOK" ! Oh My! Your telling us that there is an Official Cubmobile Rule Book!? And how, where is it available...? I truly had no idea! Our Local Rules Were Made up simply out of neccesity, common sense, safety, and as much simplicity as possible mixed in there! LOL! If it is in another section ...

Re: What do you think ? rules / regs/ building

i agree on most all of that... 'cept the floor and side boards...then it's not what i consider an Official Cubmobile...right outa the book. I know, i know... i"ve heard most all the arguments, and most of them between my own ears before i decided on the basic rules that we went with. It's just that ...

Re: What do you think ? rules / regs/ building

I like that! It's simple... Yet, considering the several boys that took a "Jhonson and Jhonson" break, i could see how it would be a worth while change! With our Classes, that i had discussed with some others, it would have to go into an "Open" Class Race, as it isn't a duplicate of the model on pag...

Cubmobile Kits ...

Well i ran the left over Cubmobile kits i had on ebay, and there were about 75 hits of people checking them out...maybe 50 of them were me! LOL!

Re: What do you think ? rules / regs/ building

YES! I had asked about getting ahold of the BSA Dept. that handles the Production of the Pine Wood Derby's, and their source of the "kits"...Yet, that was two years ago, and i have found that if i don't press everything to get them (or anyone that's plate is full already) to get back with me then i ...

Re: What do you think ? rules / regs/ building

Anyway, thats how ours got started, in reference to getting coverage for insurance through the bsa um...

Our last two seasons were District wide, with 20 some odd packs and troops invited to the event...although notice went out late, with only a month to let all know it was ago with the event. 2005 was registered as a district event, yet wasn't enough time to give all the packs and troops enough of a n...
