Will the event continue if it rains?


After last years lessons, the MinuteCub Committee has made arrangements to provide numerous canvas tents and other "sun" shelters. If dangerous weather is evident, the Committee will be review various options. For moderate or light rain the event will continue. As indicated, large tents will be in place for many of the activities. Safety and participant satisfaction is ultimately most important. If the weather is likely to prevent holding a safe event or will keep away a majority of the participants then the organizers might opt to postpone. Keep an eye on e-mail and this web site for up-to-date event information.

Is this event for Cub Scouts Only?

Should Parents/Leaders plan on staying with their kids?

Yes. Parents and/or Leaders must remain with their groups throughout the day to provide appropriate supervision.

I registered on the web - what do I do when I arrive on Sunday morning?

When you arrive please proceed to the registration table. Registration will be by group. Each group will be put into a regiment identified by a specific color. Scouts should check in at the registration when they arrive where they will be redirected to their regiment based on their unit number and there they will receive their materials from the person with the full packet. While registering, the MinuteCubs can customized their tricorn hats with supplies provided.

What should all Scouts bring?

Scouts should bring their Marshmallow Muskets, some sort of bag to carry marshmallows and wear their MinuteCub outfits.

Everyone needs to bring a bag lunch with them. Period food will be available for sampling but it will not be a suitable mid-day meal. Bring drinks - water will also be available for purchase.

Can I come for just part of the day?

Yes, however you will miss out on some of the activities. This is a full day event, registration starts early, the events kick-off at 9:00 and the final rally (which you will not want to miss!) commences at 4:05.

What about Parking?

There will be plenty of parking at the Wayside Inn. 

I did not register ahead of time, can I still participate?

Additional participants (Scout and non-Scouts) can register at the door for $50

Can Siblings (non-Cub Scouts) participate?

Yes. If siblings want to do all of the events then they should sign up as a MinuteCub.   Otherwise, tag along... 

Will photo's and video be taken?
