1 Klondike Derby Battle Lake, MN March 1st, 2014 The Klondike History Many years ago, men raced by means of dog sleds across the frozen tundra of Alaska in search of gold. The Boy Scouts of America have capitalized on this theme and has developed the Klondike Derby as an activity for Boy Scouts to demonstrate their Scouting skills. Basic Information This Klondike Derby will be held Gendalough State Park (see map) on Saturday, March 1, Check in will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. Derby starts at 10 am. Teams will draw for their starting location. Please have your Troop at the Sunset Lake Parking lot early to avoid delays. The derby will conclude with an awards ceremony. Because this is a patrol-type activity, we want your Troop to be well represented with many patrols.

2 If your Scouts would like to participate, Here is what your Troop (and individual Scouts) will need to do: Register to attend (form enclosed) - preregistration is encouraged for better planning. Build a Klondike Sled. Form Teams and Select the Team Name The dog team consists of 4 to 8 Scouts that will do the work of the huskies by pulling the sled. The team driver is the Patrol Leader. When considering names for your team, please select a name that is in good taste. Gather the Required Equipment Needed Each team will earn points for bringing the correct items. The required equipment list is enclosed. Plan the Team Lunch Each team will be required to serve their own lunch on the trail.

At the event, these things will happen: When your troop arrives, be prepared to present a check for payment of the participation fees ($6 per participant) a roster for each team, one can of soup per participant. At check in, the team driver will receive a sealed envelope containing instructions. Each team will check their instructions and then proceed to the sled inspection station and await their turn in starting their expedition. At each city (station), the Mayor of the city will greet the sled, and directed to solve a problem using basic Scouting skills.
