2021 Klondike Derby **CANCELLED**
Sign up for a Klondike assigned patrol name on the registration form on the BMC website. If you do not have a pre-assigned Klondike name, your patrol cannot be scored. The forms are made up in advance and NO ADD-ONS can be handled.
You will be asked to pay $8.00 on the day of the event. Due to unknown COVID restrictions, we will not take payment until we know the event is a go.
Each vehicle is required to have an Oregon Snow Park Pass to park at Andies Prairie. You can buy them in the Tri-Cities at various outdoor stores or at any Oregon DMV..
REQUIREMENTS for participation:
Select a patrol name from the registration list at the Scout Service Center when you sign up. Natural Patrols are encouraged to develop Patrol teamwork.
$8.00 per Scout at the event. No Pre-payment this year due to COVID restrictions might cancel the event.
Prepare a patrol flag.
Build your sledge or prepare/ repair an existing one.
Build the strong box.
Read the handout very carefully. (Only very close reading of the handout will put your patrol in the winner’s circle.)
Train your Scouts.
Practice for the Klondike.
Have a winter camp trained Scouter along that has been trained within the last 5 yrs.
Buy Snow-Park Permits for all of the vehicles. If you do not have one, you could be fined.
Each member should have the 10 essentials with him. (Page 264, Centennial Scout Handbook; Page 268, 2016 Boy Scout Handbook).
Please note: We need thirty adults to help out with judging the events during competition. Check in with headquarters when you sign in. If you prefer to follow your patrol do not offer assistance during events they participating in. Points will be subtracted by the event judge. This is the boy’s event and we want it to be fair to all of the patrols. Thank you for your leadership in teaching good sportsmanship!
