In Colony meetings, Beaver Scouts build and decorate Beaver Buggies.

Beaver Buggy racing tracks allow three buggies to race at a time! The beavers rotate racing so that every group races against every other group. The competition is fierce and fast, but there are no trophies. We are racing for the joy of the game and learning to handle disappointment of single losses because there will always be another race (and another, and another…). When Beavers move up to Cubs, they will have the opportunity to race Kub Kars for trophies.
