Camp Mahonegon Klondike Derby January 26-28, 2018 http://WWW.ALLOHAK.ORG/index.php/events/camp-mahonegon-klondike-derby-january-26-28-2018 http://WWW.ALLOHAK.ORG/index.php/events/camp-mahonegon-klondike-derby-january-26-28-2018#comments Wed, 10 Jan 2018 04:17:15 +0000 Joseph Testerman http://WWW.ALLOHAK.ORG/?p=18997

The Camp Mahonegon Klondike will be held on January 26-28, 2018. Check-in will begin on Friday evening at 7:00 pm at the Dining Hall. The cost of the Klondike is $12.00 (which includes a patch and Lunch — lunch is a graded station). This is a Boy Scout Winter Skills and Camping event (hopefully we will have snow). This Klondike will be run using an open-schedule format (except for lunch). Please review the LEADER’S GUIDE for further information.


If your patrol camps in a tent on Friday night, they will receive 10 points to be added to their total score for the competition.


One of the most important parts of the Klondike Derby is to BE PREPARED to stay warm and dry. It is recommended to change into a dry pair of clothing that you could roll up in your sleeping bag before you go to sleep. Each scout must know what to wear as the weather at Camp Mahonegon can change very quickly. Dress in layers for the daytime activities so that you avoid sweating or getting too cold. Boots are required to keep your feet warm and dry.

    Kootaga Klondike Derby Jan. 19-20 http://WWW.ALLOHAK.ORG/index.php/events/kootaga-klondike-derby-jan-20-21 http://WWW.ALLOHAK.ORG/index.php/events/kootaga-klondike-derby-jan-20-21#comments Fri, 15 Dec 2017 16:17:10 +0000 Joseph Testerman

    This year the Klondike will be held at Camp Kootaga. Everything starts Saturday morning, check-in will be held at Sparky’s Park. Check-in will start at 07:30AM and will be completed at 08:45AM. The cost of the Klondike will be $5.00. Lunch will be provided.

    We do need your help in order to run this Klondike so the Scouts will have a great program. So call or email me, it’s listed on the last page.

    What is a Klondike Derby?
    It’s a Boy Scout Winter Skill and Camping event, held in January in the snow (hopefully). Typically, it involves an overnight campout and multiple Camporee type competitions, where Boy Scout Troops and Patrols compete against each other. Boys are divided into Patrols and each Patrol uses a Dog Type sled that uses Scout power to pull it instead of dogs. The Scouts pull the sleds that are loaded with their personal and patrol equipment. The Scouts journey through woods and fields, up and down the hills and stop at different activity stations where they are tested on different Scout skills. When they arrive at these stations they are tested on their Scouting knowledge, team work and problem solving skills.

    One of the most important parts of a Klondike Derby is to keep warm and dry. Each Scout must know what to wear. Winter weather is very changeable, requiring preparedness for almost any condition. Your best protection is your common sense. Dress in layers. Avoid working up a sweat, and keep yourself comfortable by removing or adding layers of clothing.

    If your troop camps in TENTS Friday night they will receive an extra 20 points on their score sheet at the end of the activities.

    Will be provided.

    There will be no wheels allowed on the sled.

    SOME CHANGES THAT LEADERS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT! http://WWW.ALLOHAK.ORG/index.php/news/some-changes-that-leaders-to-know-about http://WWW.ALLOHAK.ORG/index.php/news/some-changes-that-leaders-to-know-about#comments Thu, 07 Sep 2017 20:44:18 +0000 joburns http://WWW.ALLOHAK.ORG/?p=17763 From the BSA National Office:

    Effective immediately, there is a new position available to help the unit welcome new members and their parents, introduce them into the unit, and get them off to a great start in Scouting. the new positions, called New Member Coordinator, is available for every type of Scouting unit (Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturing) and Explorer posts and clubs. Its purpose is not only to help recruit new members to join the unit, but also to engage new youth and their families in the unit experience so they feel “welcomed”.

    The New Member Coordinator position is a registered adult leader position requiring an adult leader application, Youth Protection training and a criminal background check. A unit can have one or more new member coordinators.

    The position of New Member Coordinator replaces the position of parent coordinator and unit membership chair. These positions will be expired at the end of the year and will no longer be available. All leaders currently in those positions will receive several communications to encourage them to become new member coordinators.

    Youth Protection Training Requirements changes
    Effective September 1, Youth Protection training is required for all leaders at the time of registration. Applications from new leaders must be accompanied by a Youth Protections training completion certificate, which will be filed with the application.

    Effective with December 1, registratin fees will be $33.

    Effective for the 2018 BSA summer camp season, any adult accompanying a Boy Scout troop to a resident camp or other Scouting adtivity and participating 3 nights or more must be registered as a leader, including completion of a CBC and YPT, even if they are the parent of a youth on the trip.
