Great Bear Klondike Derby 2018

Outpost Delta, Ice Planet Hoth

Rebel commanders, prepare your patrols for a day of testing
their scout skills at outpost Delta on the ice planet Hoth.
(Sorry, no Tauntauns will be allowed in the exercises.)

Preliminary Schedule:
  • 9:00-9:45 Registration (at T-Lodge)
  • 9:45-10:00 Opening Meeting
  • 10:00-11:30 Stations
  • 11:30-1:30 Lunch
  • 1:30-3:30 Stations
  • 3:30-4:00 Closing Meeting

Prepare your patrol sleds for a day of fun and testing your patrol cohesiveness and scout skills.
During the day, patrols will visit multiple locations and work together to solve problems,
demonstrate scout skills and just have fun.

The weather on Hoth can be a challenge, come prepared to spend the day outside. There will be a warming station in T-Lodge. Due
to the construction on K-Lodge and small size of T-Lodge, we will hold all activities outside.

We hope this Klondike Derby will offer both fun and challenges that will help your patrols grow as they face the challenge and succeed.
