Klondike Derby 2013

Starting on Friday evening, Jan. 18 thru Sunday morning, January 20, 2013, we participated in the Klondike Derby.  Once again, it was held in Little Bennett Regional Park and almost 900 Scouts and Scouters attended this event.

For those who are not aware, it is cold weather camping.  This year, it got down into the low 30s  but during the day it went up to the upper 40s. 

Our menu was planned by two of our Scouts and they did a very good job of planning, with the exception of Mac-n-Cheese, which was banned by Scoutmaster Barone.  This trip saw two new items added: donuts and Eggs-McSub.  Yes, we did not have English muffins and so we saw an opportunity to try something new: the use of sub-rolls.  It wasn’t bad.

Scouts, working together as a patrol, competed against others in using various skills, such as knots, lashings, communication, etc.

In a future, we will post the results and some photos, including one of a young Scout eating an Egg-McSub!

Help Solve a Troop 466/Troop 434 Mystery

Not too long ago, we found the flag of Troop 434 Sligo Jr. High School in our troop room.  The assumption is that this troop closed and the flag was given to us.  However, we no one can remember this troop.  Can you help?   Please write to us at brim.home@verizon.net.   Thank you.
