Cubmobile

November 6th, 2015 – 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Thompson Park, Jamesburg, NJ

Each “team” registration can contain up to eight Scouts. It is recommended that Scouts be registered at the Pack level.

At least two volunteer adults must be registered for each team to assist with multiple activities at the event such as timing, inspection, loading, etc.

Packs will be assigned a race time slot based on number of registrants in order to balance the traffic flow through the park. Please arrive half an hour before your assigned race time to clear car inspection and check-in.

Helmets and seat belts are required wear for every racer. We strongly recommend that each Scout bring their own bike helmet to minimize downtime.

Cost is $7.50 per Scout.
