Winter Outdoor Skills Competition!
Saturday, February 18, 2017.
This is a traditional Scouting Winter Camping and Outdoor Skills competition.  Each patrol/crew must build and bring a wheeled Klondike sled or a wheeled miniature Conestoga or Prairie Schooner Wagon with their trademark canvas bonnets!  Participants can serve as the draft animal of their choice: dogs, horses, oxen, or mules - depending on the vehicle they bring!  Patrols/teams will load the wagons/sleds with their personal and patrol equipment and pull them through the competition course using a map and compass to find each station.  Competition Stations will be named after famous Gold Rush towns.  Patrols/teams will receive "gold" nuggets for their score at each station.. (read more)
