Friday, January 24 -
Troop 54 will participate in the Wachusett Klondike Derby (Nashua Valley Council) at the Nimrod League in Princeton, Massachusetts. This will be our Troop's first camping experience at the Nimrod League.
A Klondike Derby is a Boy Scout winter skill and camping event. Each patrol will pull a sled, loaded with personal and patrol equipment. The Scouts will journey across the snow, stopping at different activity stations. At these stations, they will be tested on their Scouting knowledge, team work, and problem solving skills, competing against other patrols. The biggest activity is the sled race. Depending on weather conditions, this can be on snow, ice (on a frozen lake) dirt or mud. Remember - a Scout is Prepared.
Event Packet - Includes the event schedule and other information.
Note: The weather can be quite cold this time of year. Be sure to wear warm clothing in layers and to bring spare clothing, especially socks. Ensure that sleeping bags are suitable for the expected temperatures.
Meet at the Epworth United Methodist Church parking lot at 6:30 PM Friday for departure by 6:45 PM.
Travel from the church to the Nimrod League is about 22 minutes.
Estimated return to the church is 11:00 AM Sunday.
