When our District Field Director met with me for one on one training in August, he informed me of the restrictions of the activities of the Lion Cubs regarding the Pilot Program's suggestions and recommendations.
As for this first " pilot " year, Lion Cubs (as a den) cannot participate in popcorn sales, pinewood derby races, camping out, and is to only attend 3 Pack meetings during the year. Our meetings and field trips are no longer than 45 minutes long which is also suggested. This will be monitored by those who have set up this pilot program.
