KLONDIKE DERBY

Posted on Jan 30 2023 - 8:32pm

What a day at the Klondike. The weather was picture perfect. The temps almost made it to 50 degrees. At our Thursday meeting we worked on finishing our tent pegs and Mr. Bernier reviewed starting a fire and how and what to cook at the Klondike cooktown. Thanks to Pete, Chris, and Mark for running the Sawmill station. The scouts told us it was a fun station. Scouts love playing with knives, axes, and saws. The great weather had many patrols finishing early. A total of 44 patrols competed in the Klondike Derby. A few patrols from Massachusetts competed. Thanks Mr. Bernier for a great program at Camp Mattatuck.
