2022 Activities

Spirit Trail Soapbox Derby
August 20, 2022 | 9:00 a.m. - 1 Rooster Way | Pleasant Hill, MO  64080

This is the 2nd annual Spirit Trail Soapbox Derby, this time open to COUNCIL-WIDE Cub Scouts, Webelos, and AOLs.

BSA cubmobiles have been raced for decades around the nation - consisting only of a seat, wheels, and a couple axles. Incorporating the idea of child and parent to build cubmobile together, quality time which doesn’t happen much anymore. Packs across the nation utilize a hill within their local neighborhood every year to race. Plus, a simple brake and rope to steer guiding the way to the finish line! Cubmobiles not powered by gasoline or any other type of fuel; nothing but the force of gravity rushing down the hill! Where the winner is the racer that reaches the bottom of the hill first and with the fastest time.
