Event:  Klondike Derby “Interstellar Battle for the Glacier’s Edge Galaxy”

Troop Note : Both the Event and Troop need plenty of adult leader volunteers. The Klondike is asking for 50 – 60 leaders to serve as judges for the events and help with preparation and clean up of lunch. So we ask the Boy Scout, Venture crew and any extra Webelos leaders to help out during Interstellar competition and at lunch. We will have opportunities for everyone to help with the events. All helping adults will be trained that morning prior to the events. Adult leaders that plan to help with judging can register for reduced cost (half price- this covers cost of lunch and patch).

Necessities To Bring With You That Are A Must

 

  • Winter Sleeping Bag
  • Sweats to sleep in
  • Foam mattress, cot or air mattress (can get a single person pool flotation mattress at Dollar Store)
  • Flashlight or head lamp
  • Plastic drop cloth or camping tarp to put under sleeping gear (2) under and one over your gear during the day
  • Old clothes for exploring (sometimes clay doesn’t wash out and yes, you will get dirty or possibly wet!)
  • EXTRA CLOTHES (Always have enough dry clothes to wear)
  • Extra shoes, boots, clothes, hats, gloves, etc. (always have enough dry clothes to wear)
  • Toiletries
  • Towels
  • Spending cash if preferred (for game room / gift shop / snacks / extra beverages)
  • A couple plastic bags for wet or muddy clothes OR to keep items dry
  • Troop’s first aid kit

***TIP FROM CUSTOMERS THAT COME EVERY YEAR AND LOVE TO GET IN EVERY NOOK AND CRANNY – Buy old clothes from a thrift shop for a couple bucks and throw them in the dumpster when you’re done or if you have a rain gear set that’s waterproof, it usually works great. To ensure you won’t loose anything of great value leave items at home or locked in your car. Label your cell phones or make sure mom, dad or home is programmed in so that if it is lost, we can find the owner. Also make sure your wallet has your ID name in it. A troop # or your group’s name can be even more helpful if it happens to be found after the weekend happens to be over.

 

NOT Necessities But Things You Might Wish You Brought With You

 

  • Knee pads for exploring down under, crawling around in subterranean tunnels
  • Some kind of head protection such as a bike helmet, hard hat, or as little as a baseball cap or thick knit hat
  • Snow pants
  • Ear plugs and eye masks if you’re a light sleeper
  • Sled if desired,, NO RAIL SLEDS (sleds that roll up or inflate are great for cargo space)
  • Hand held GPS if desired for geocaching
  • Troop flag
  • Water bottle
