          • 30 Cubs * $24 (National registration) plus 30 Cubs * $12 (Boys’ Life) = $720 + $360 = $1,080
          • 8 Adult Leaders * $24 (National registration) = $192
          • 1 Unit * $40 (National) = $40
          • (30 Cubs + 8 Adults Leaders + 5 Tiger/Lion Adult Partners) * $2 (Council liability) = $86
