Klondike Derby: Feb. 24-26, 2017
Where: Sand Hill Scout Reservation
Cost: $12 per participant with Early Bird registration. After Feb. 21, price increases to $15 per participant
Details: Many years ago, men raced across the Alaskan frozen wilderness by means of dogs and sleds. Scouting has taken this idea and came up with the idea of the Klondike Derby as an activity for Boy Scouts.
Each patrol builds a sled, collects materials and equipment, and prepares to embark on the Klondike and participate as a team in the derby. After the patrol completes each event, their Tally Card is marked by an official and total scores tallied at the end of the event.
Pinewood Derby Competition—April 8
This event is hosted by the Anclote District and offers opportunities for Scouts, their siblings and adults to enjoy Scouting fellowship, which includes friendly competition. Scouts can compete in the Pinewood Derby for first, second or third place in their rank group. Adults and siblings can compete in their own race. Concessions will be available.
Note: you must be a registered Cub Scout on the day of the race to participate. In addition, registration for this event will require a Sportmanship Agreement, which will be provided at Check-In.
$7 per Scout racer, adult or sibling, payable at the door.
Check-In is from 8—9:30 AM, with the first race beginning at 10 AM. You must be on time. We cannot add your name to the roster after the first race begins. We will use an electronic track with electronic scoring and electronic bracketing.
