the klondike derby

recently C and S had a great time at the scout event, the klondike derby! their patrol first had to build their own sled. this sled was used it to compete in the derby by packing and hauling their gear through a series of stations where they would demonstrate various scouting skills. these skills included first aid, knot tying, building a campfire and preparing a hot meal, and chopping wood. S was really excited that the up and coming webelos scouts were invited to be there. he will cross over from cub scouts into boy scouts later this month. it was a cold wintery day, but thankfully it was not below zero! congratulations for completing the course!
