A pushmobile is a Cub Scout powered go-cart. Cub Scout dens in kindergarten through fifth grade make their own pushmobile. Six Cub Scouts work together as a team to push their pushmobile through the course to the finish line at this annual district event. Cub Scouts get the opportunity to design, build and race their own pushmobile. The pushmobile made of any type of materials that follow certain safety guidelines including a seat, brake, and steering. Other than that, the sky's the limit on structure, design and materials. Let's race. Scouts, start your engines, I mean feet! The den leader or unit registers online with credit card or electronic check. Registration closes on 12/5/19. There is no onsite registration. The races are being held at Copperfield Church (8350 Highway 6 North, Houston, TX 77095).

Friends of Scouting Presentation
Presentation date due by December 12, 2019
Friends of Scouting is an opportunity for families, friends, alumni, businesses and community organizations to support Scouting. The registration fee goes directly to the national office of the Boy Scouts of America. If a Scout unit collects dues, that money stays with the unit to help pay for supplies, advancements and other activities. None of that money helps the Sam Houston Area Council. In order to keep Scouting affordable for all youth, the council runs an annual Friends of Scouting fundraising campaign.
Friends of Scouting helps:
- Recruit and train youth and leaders
- Provide assistance to those in need
- Keep camps and activities affordable
- Enhance programming and facilities
- Provide communication tools for volunteer leaders
Friends of Scouting contributions provide approximately 24 percent of the support the council receives each year. The success of Scouting depends on those who support it. Please help Scouting provide the resources necessary to make sure every youth can benefit from Scouting’s fun, exciting, adventure-filled activities that foster character, honesty, respect and life-long values.
Unit Leaders: Each unit is requested to hold a FOS presentation at your unit’s biggest gathering (typically the blue and gold banquet or a troop court of honor) during the months of February through May. The presentation, which takes approximately seven minutes to conduct, informs parents and leaders of all council services, its financial needs and extends an opportunity to help fulfill the need. Please sign up for a presentation.
