26th Halifax Scouting
Off to the Races!!Last Wednesday, night April 27th St. Agnes Church Auditorium, home to 26th Halifax Scouting Group, was the place to be! Some 40 Cubs from 26th Halifax and 2nd Fairview gathered for kar races! Kub kars are likely the highlight event of the Cub year and a Scouting tradition, dating back over 40 years in the Halifax area. Starting off with a simple ‘kub kar kit” containing a wooden block, car wheels and attachment pieces. Cubs are given about a month to build and paint their individually unique kars. The adventure was not just about fun but learning too! Kub Kars are a great way for kids to learn a lot, how to be creative , how to safely handle tools, it introduces cubs to scientific concepts of gravity, potential and kinetic energy and their impact on our racing. Mostly it is about FUN! In a constant flow of “blink and you’ll miss it” races cars zip down wooden tracks that span the length of the hall, only by gravity and momentum!using an electronic timing device to record their speed! Cubs wait anxiously to see if their kar will be the “Top Gun” or the fastest kar! Prizes are awarded for first, second and third finishes, and for “creativity content” categories including best theme, most realistic car and weirdest paint job. Our fastest average speed time was achieved by a 26th Halifax Cub at 2.49905 seconds! Well done Max!It’s fast, it’s loud, it’s nail biting FUN! Halted by COVID the last two years it was exciting and refreshing to see a return to the races this year. An assuring sign that things are returning to a “new normal”. Well done Cubs. Special thanks to all the Scouters who helped make this a success. A huge thank you to Paul for his technical support with electronic timers and race scheduling. Look forward to bigger and better things next year! ... See MoreSee Less

26th Halifax Scouting
On Wed. March 23rd, our 26th Halifax Cubs did their annual garbage pick-up project. This year cubs collected garbage along the 600 block of Macintosh Run Community Trail in Spryfield. Cubs were met and greeted there by District 11 Councellor Patty Cuttlell, who took time to come out and thank the cubs for their community service efforts, she also reinforced the importance of what they were doing to help keep our communities clean. Cubs instructed on safety in picking up garbage; what is safe and not safe to pick-up, wearing plastic gloves and keeping hands away from their face. Cubs learned what was garbage, recycling, compost and even Toxic waste! With less than 1.5 hours to work Cubs picked up a great deal of waste, leaving the trail a great deal cleaner then when we arrived. The Cubs were very exited and had fun doing this. Well done Cubs!! ... See MoreSee Less
