Sled preparation for the Winter Camporee held 1/9/2014 thru 1/12/2014

Troop 301 Scouts,

This year Saturday will be an all-day Klondike sled competition. The scouts will begin at a predetermined start point that we will assigned. They will follow a course that will bring them to different stations throughout the camp. The last leg of the course will be timed. A little tip: make sure your sleds are in good shape since they will be used all day. On one part of the course, the boys will have to pick up their sled and turn it over to see if their gear remains on the sled. Then, they will turn the sled right side up and carry it for 150’.
