Washington Trail Klondike Derby

Klondike sledWashington Trail District 2015 KLONDIKE DERBY January 17, 2015 at Custaloga Town Scout Reservation

The Klondike Derby recreates the excitement and strenuous activity of those gold rush days!  This is the district’s traditional wintertime activity for Scout patrols, crews and teams.  In this trail event, Scouts will form “dog sled teams” and pull their own homemade sleds along a set course.  At various towns along the course, they will stop to earn “gold nugget points” by solving problems through teamwork while using their Scouting skills.

Each Troop, Crew, or Team should register the number of sled teams that they wish to participate.   Pre-registration is important to running a quality event.  This can be done by sending in the Registration Form at the end of this packet to French Creek Council.  A discounted fee of $8.00 per Scout, Webelos Scouts and Adults are $6.00 is offered for those registering by January 9, 2015.  After January 9, 2015, the fee is $10.00.  Webelos and Adults can follow with a troop sled and get a patch but they are not to be used to make up the sled team.

Registration will be in the dining hall from 7:00-8:45 am Saturday morning.  Each Patrol, Crew, or Team must submit a roster of members at check-in. A Roster Form is included in this packet.  Patches will be given to each participant along with a ribbon for each patrol

If you have any questions or would like to participate by running a station, please contact Mike Cidor at (814)868-5571 or (814)860-1562 or
