Greetings from the Camping Committee,
We had another successful Klondike with great weather and a great turnout from the District. Thank you’s go out to Troop 1,Troop 4, Troop 7, Troop 14, troop 26, Troop 28, Troop 1151, and Troop 1155. All came and efficiently set up their camps in record time.
Friday night started out worrisome as the bathrooms once again froze up in anticipation of our arrival. Luckily, Troop 7 stepped up and brought us Porti Potties from Waste Management (thank you all). You saved the day. Troop 7 also brought up a two stage snow blower to deal with the 15 inches of snow. (smart thinking).
Friday night was also home to the Pizza Travelers Feast and Ice Cream Social sponsored by the Lewis & Clark District Camporee Committee. The lodge was toasty warm thanks to Shawn at Rotary Headquarters. It was needed because it was in low teens at morning time.
Saturday brought the events such as:
- Sled inspections,
- First aid,
- Sling Shot,
- Sled balance,
- Stretcher carry,
- Snowshoe Relay,and
- the Infamous sled races.
The results are as follows:
- Fourth place Troop 14 Snowballs with 223 nuggets
- Third place Troop 4 Silver-back Gorillas with 225 nuggets
- Second place Troop 7 Wolves with 228 nuggets
- First place Troop 28 Wild Stallions with 229 nuggets
WOW! that was a close competition!
The Hot Cocoa event was won by Troop 4
The adult hatchet building won by Van Arvanites from Troop 28
Fastest sled time was Troop 1 Hydras at 15:59 followed closely by Troop 14 with a 15:60 and Troop 1151 with 16:32
Congratulations to you all!
Forrest C LaBelle, Chairman
