HERE IS SOME INFORMATION YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT

KLONDIKE DERBY . . .

Sled Teams are to be no more than 8 youth per sled.  You will have 6 hours to visit all 5 Cities on the Klondike, plus cook a hot lunch for your Sled.

C i t i e s

- Archery - All archers scores combined will be your Score for the City.  Each Sled will get a practice round and a scoring round.  A Sled can choose after their qualify round to count that score and skip the 2nd round shot.

- Lashing and Knots - Each Patrol will use their four 6-foot Scout staves, whipped lashing lines, nine whipped 8-foot ¼” guy lines (to be lashed together with sheet bend knots to make three 24-foot guy lines), Hammer or Sledge, and 3 stakes. Factor in the weather, wind and temperature conditions when selecting the materials to be used.

- Sling Shot - Their will be a mix of skills at this station.  Target Shooting with scores. Warm up will be practicing knocking over cans. For the Bonus Score, pick your top sling shooter. He will get 3 chances to get the shot at an open-topped can.

- Map and Compass - Information Forth Coming

- First Aid - You will have several tasks at First Aid based on the ranks from Scout to 1st Class, including seasonal challenges. Be prepared to have to get an injured person out of the back country.

Earn bragging rights for for unit by having the highest NUMBER of youth camping outside Friday night, compared to the total NUMBER IN YOUR UNIT attending Klondike. For example you have 24 registered youth and 10 Camp outside, your score would be 10 out of 24.

Come Prepared.  The Governor will visit each unit camping out Friday night to validate your camping number. Be prepared to impress him with your Scouting Winter Camping skills.  Non Traditional outdoor sleeping quarters are always welcomed, and may be considered for tie breaking and bragging.
