58th Cubs Win the Cub District Indoor Competition 2016

Oct
14

Congratulations to the 58th Cub Pack who won our District Indoor Competition last Wednesday. The teams of 6 cubs had an hour to build the tallest free standing tower made out of drinking straws. The tower also had to support the weight of a Kinder Egg and the height was measured from the top of this. There were lots of interesting structures being built and things got quite tense in the last few minutes as some teams found they had gone a bit too high and their tower wouldn't stand up on its own.
