For the first time in almost 9 years the weather co-operated with us at this year's Superheroes of Manitou Cuboree. Our Pack came in an Indiana Jones theme, complete with simulated bull-whips and water pistols! 19 out of 20 members of the Pack participated in this fun day.
Events included a M*A*S*H stretcher race, a "Men In Black" Alien Relay, an obstacle course, and the infamous DUNK TANK. Robbie, who is a likely Blue Jays prospect, sunk 3 in a row at the dunk tank. His prize, the Leader of his choice became the target of choice. The "lucky" leader, Kaa, thanks to Raksha's sudden "disappearing act". Kyle sunk him on his second shot. Perhaps the most memorable event was the cartooning session put on by Mr. Ken Lashley, a comics illustrator currently with DC Comics (J.L.A). Special thanks to Ken, as well as Grand & Toy and Avenor Paper, sponsors of the event.
As always our 3rd year Cubs, all 8 of them, got to spend the whole weekend camping. During the Friday night game they were one of the only groups to correctly decipher the secret code, which turned out to be a Jungle Book poem!
