Yellow Briar Area Races Sleepover 2016

In the Fall there was a conversation at the Yellow Briar Area Forum about trying a new format for the Area Races this year based on declining attendance for recent years. After positive feedback we have decided to try a build event plus sleepover this year!

Arriving on Friday evening, participants will have evening activities (Troop members will have the opportunity to start building) and a mug up. On Saturday (with the help of several experienced woodworkers) vehicle construction will begin after breakfast. Once completed youth with have a chance to race them as well as several challenge courses. There will also be an indoor “campfire”.

We are asking that each Colony/Pack/Troop big a Kub Kar challenge (ie KK bowling, KK loop d loop, KK slingshot etc etc) and a song/skit/cheer for campfire. Please remember to bring un-built kits – all construction will take place during the event.

Should you have any questions regarding this new format please feel free to myself at
