Chocolate Math

Buffalo District RT Staff , Three Rivers Council

This only takes 30 seconds. Work this out as you read.

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate. (Try for more than once but less than 10)

2. Multiply this number by 2 (Just to be bold)

3. Add 5. (For Sunday)

4. Multiply it by 50. I'll wait while you get the calculator.

5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1750. If you haven't, add 1749.

6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born. (If you remember!)

You should now have a three digit number. The first digit is your original number (i.e., how many times you want to have chocolate each week). The second two digits are your age.

Eight on a Neckerchief (for Pack competition)
Aloha Council

Place a Cub Scout neckerchief (I would cut scrap fabric to size in place of an actual neckerchief). All eight-den members have to stand on this neckerchief. This is accomplished by 3 or 4 boys getting their feet on it and holding on to each other. The others that cannot get both feet on the neckerchief have to hang on, climb on, or get one foot or toe on and hold fast to the other Cubs to balance themselves. The winning den is the first one to accomplish the feat without falling over. It is a good rough and tumble game.

Olympic Torch Relay
Aloha Council

Players line up in relay formation. The leader of each team holds a Ping-Pong ball balanced on top of a roll of newspaper. On signal, he runs to goal line and back to his team, passing the torch on to the second player. If the ball drops, the runner must return to starting line.
