Troops of Heart of Virginia Council get out those sleds and brush up on those Scout and cooking skills and join us for the 2023 Capitol/Cardinal Klondike Derby. Patrols will travel between stations working as a “dogsled” team, using Scout power to pull their sled instead of dogs. The stations will challenge each patrol's knowledge of Scout Skills in a timed test. Each Patrol will be assigned a unique set of bearings that they will follow to navigate from station to station using map and compass. The Scouts pull their sled loaded with required sled team equipment through woods and fields, up and down hills, stopping at the various stations where they earn “gold nuggets” based on their performance. The "gold nuggets" that patrols receive will be used to purchase items at an equipment auction held Saturday evening.

Some of the skills on which they may be tested will include:

  • Sled and equipment inspection                                                   
  • Map and compass navigation
  • Fire building
