Cubs meet every Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at the Sandy Hill Community Centre.

Identify your uniform!
If you havent done so already, please take time to write your name on sashes, shirt and neckerchief. It makes it easier for everyone to find their own stuff after we place them aside for a game or at camp.
