2013 Klondike Derby
"Strike 3: Too Many Neighbors"
Latimer High Adventure Reservation
334 Plantation Rd
The third annual Klondike Derby held at Latimer High Adventure Base the weekend of January 25-27. This year’s Derby is being chaired by Dr. Kurt Kowalski. He and the VOA have put together a very exciting weekend. Deadline for registration is January 10th, 2013. While we actually experienced some snow while on the trail last year, who knows what adventures await us this year for "Strike Three: Too Many Neighbors."
Just before the turn of the century, Gold prospectors traveled the sub-zero reaches of Alaska by dogs and sleds. They camped out in all kinds of winter weather, and therefore needed adequate survival skills, which, they learned from native Eskimos. Scouting has incorporated this theme in the Klondike Derby. The point of the Klondike Derby is to make Venturers and Sea Scouts use their heads, to put their Scouting skills to work in the field, to demonstrate teamwork and Scout spirit, and to have fun in the outdoors in the winter.
