2021 7B Klondike Derby
Let the games begin!
On Saturday, January 30, 2021, everyone in the Klondike is taking a break from their hard labors of transporting gear, digging mines, and panning for gold. Instead, they are going to spend a day of playing games – HIGHLAND GAMES!
Games that test one’s ability to do everyday tasks predate all written history. The Highland Games are said to have begun November of 1093 when Scottish King Malcolm III summoned men to race up a hill overlooking the village of Braemar with the aim of finding the fastest runner in Scotland to be his royal messenger. The HIGHLAND GAMES have since evolved into a festival of fun and culture, discovering the fastest and strongest among the competitors.
Also new this year--no camping due to COVID-19 precautions, an emphasis on COSTUMES, and a choice of lunch included in the registration price. The lunch will include two sandwiches (pick from hamburg barbeque, hot dog, or grilled cheese), baked beans, chips, and a drink. You can pick two of the same sandwich or make a combo.
See the flyers attached for rules, costume ideas, a schedule of events, and the required sled gear. See you at the Games!
