GET READY TO GEAR UP FOR THE 2015 KLONDIKE DERBY AT DEAR
OLD CAMP MAHONEGON! IN HOPES THAT EVERYONE HAD A GREAT KLONDIKE IN 2014, THE KLONDIKE COMMITTEE IS PLANNING ANOTHER OUTSTANDING WINTER ADVENTURE! AS YOU READ THROUGH THE LEADERS PACKET, PLEASE NOTE OUR RULES AND REGISTRATION.
Welcome to Klondike Derby 2015 at Camp Mahonegon!
Once again, it’s great to see everyone. This year’s Klondike looks to be
one of the best. An added point category this year will award 10 points to each Patrol that camps Friday night.
As with last year, we are following an open-schedule format. This means
that there are no set times for stations (except for lunch-you will be assigned a time). We do this to try to let our scouts plan out their day, and try to brush up on skills in stations where they may need a little work. We have some surprises in store for stations this year. You’ll see the new stations as you arrive at each one.
A couple of pointers for this year, make sure your patrol shows scout spirit.
Find the station leader and ask for permission to enter the station, to make
sure they are ready for another group. Also, a patrol cheer would be great! We
are trying to gear our Klondike to promote good leadership and teamwork,
stress this to your units.
While the Klondike is a competition, we also need to stress safety and
fun. Be aware of your scouts condition. If you believe someone to be colder
than they should really be, get them inside and warmed up. We want this to be a
great experience for everyone.
Also, if any leaders wish to help with stations, we would be happy to put
you to work! Thank you once again for coming and participating.
The Klondike Staff
As with Klondike last year, each Unit needs to send a $20.00 deposit along with
the number of Scouts and adults attending. The deposit will be applied to your
registration fee. The fee per person this year will be $12.00, covering food and
supplies. We are asking all units to register as soon as possible, in order to accurately
purchase food and supplies. All registration fees should be sent to:

(preferably not nylon rope)
First Aid Kit
Whatever is necessary to be prepared!
We hope everyone has a great time. The purpose of the Klondike
is to help build teamwork and leadership, to improve Scout
Skills, to promote healthy competition, and most importantly to
have fun. We encourage anyone suffering from the cold to take
time out to warm themselves. Leaders please be aware of your
kids and their needs.
See you at the Klondike.
