Cub-O 2016

Cub-O-pack-243-2015

Cub-O is Saturday January 2nd!  Sign up at the Pack meeting on 12/14, cost is covered in Pack Dues.

Cub-O is an orienteering event designed for everyone to enjoy: dens that compete hard, dens that want an easy hike in the woods, and dens that want to teach their boys more about problem solving and map reading.  All Tigers, Cub Scouts, Webelos, leaders, and parents are invited.  Separate awards for each age group.  CUB-O is the most popular Orienteering event in the USA! Over 1000 Cub Scouts, leaders, and parents participated in CUB-O every year since 1999!  It’s fast, exciting, and FUN.  And it’s all Cub Scouts.  The locations of 40-50 orange and white orienteering flags are marked on the map and you and your team will go hiking in the woods to find them – or most of them! Each flag has a hole punch that you use to mark your scorecard. Flags are worth 5, 10, 15, 20, or 30 points, depending on how hard they are to find.  Your Den team will get a Cub-O competition map 20 minutes before the race starts.  Then you plan a hiking strategy to find the most flags and score the most points in just 2.5 hours!  You’ll stay warm ‘cause you’ll stay moving!

9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. We’ll meet at Holy Trinity at 9AM.  Check-in at the main dining hall at Sid Richardson Scout Ranch.

9:30 a.m. – 11:30 p.m. Map Trainings every 1/2 hour. Learn to read maps and have more fun on your hike!

11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Lunch provided in Dining Hall (meal times assigned)   1:10 p.m.  Competition maps given out to teams

1:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Cub-O Orienteering Competition. Have fun and good hiking!

7:30 p.m.  Campfire
