Have your boys and your parents to be prepared for a typical cold January day where they are going to be outside for a good majority of it.  Boots, gloves, hats, long underwear, layers etc.  This year there will be a sled race!  Each den sled should have with it a rope for towing, a mascot hopefully representative of the theme of Knights and Dragons, a den flag (homemade) and a blanket.  There will be judging of the sleds along with an emphasis on scout spirit! 

School age siblings can participate if they have their respective leader’s approval.  As expected, they will need to be registered and paid for.

EXTRA HATS, Gloves, Spare socks are strongly advised!

There will be ribbons this year for participation, sleds, scout spirit and various events.  Anyone that has any special needs is encouraged to visit the first aid station upon arrival so that we can make the necessary accommodations.  Any other questions please email the Yukon coordinator Bryan Kantor at  Phone number is 413-454-5805.
