Great Rivers District Klondike Derby
The Klondike Derby is a day-long, winter outdoor racing adventure that builds comradery and friendship. Based on the heritage of the Klondike Gold Rush, Scouts spend the morning participating in Scouting-focused station activities, where they will test their Scoutcraft skills. 

After lunch, each Patrol races their Scout-built Klondike sleds (or sledges) on a set course through the snow. One Scout is seated in the sled, the others push or pull the sled to make it go. 

Boy Scouts have been participating in these Klondike Derbies since 1949. This Great Rivers District activity has been a winter favorite for many years. Join the fun on Saturday, January 27th, 2018! 

If your Troop doesn't have a sled, you can purchase skis and instructions from Great Rivers to make one for $10. The sled is easy to make, sturdy, light-weight and can be easily stored in a small space. 

Please email Jenny Veith at j3nnyv31th@hotmail.com or call at 651.343.9860 to find out how to reserve your pair!
