Location: Lee Sportsmans Club, 565 Fairview Street, Lee
Stations: The following are the stations Patrols will be the competing in throughout the Klondike Derby. Scouts will earn points based on performance and Scout spirit.
The sled is inspected for all required equipment and for proper packing; nothing should fall out when the sled is turned over. Every Scout must be wearing appropriate clothing and footwear. Patrol photos will be taken at this time.
Don’t Spill the Serum
The sled will be fitted with a cup and the Patrol must deliver the serum to the aid station as quickly as possible over the marked trail. Upon arriving at the first station the contents of the cup will be measured and points awarded based on how much was in the cup and the time taken to deliver the serum.
The patrol and sled must cross the ravine without anything falling into the ravine. A point penalty will be accessed for each item or people who fall into the ravine.
With the materials given, create a fire and bring 2 cups of water to a boil.
With the materials given, create a raised platform capable of holding 3 Scouts.
Using a compass and co-ordinance, reach each waypoint and arrive at the finish as fast as possible.
After a brief safety meeting, each Scout will shoot a .22 rifle at a target a number of times and the cumulative score will count towards Klondike points.
The Patrol will rescue a victim from a distance that has “fallen through the ice”. Discuss hypothermia, frost bite, prevention and care with the facilitator. Devise a system to transport victim to safety using items from the sled, but not the sled itself.
