2021 Klondike Derby

After much hard thinking and talking to Scouters and Cascade County Health Department a normal Klondike is impossible given the current guidelines in regard to gatherings. Instead we encourage each Troop to do its own Klondike with their own relay for the trophy. We hope to have a Camping Committee representative at each event. Your troop can do an overnight or day event. We would like you to put together a five minute video of this relay that we can post on the Committee Facebook page. Please also record a skit. The tin foil dinner competition should also be performed and judged by a camping committee member. Troops are not required to do a SELF KLONDIKE for the trophy but can do a Winter Camp instead and produce a video to share with the District. There will be a patch designed by Troop 110 for those who participate, any Troop doing a video will get patches. Click here for the updated leader guide, and we will discuss further at this week’s district committee meeting.

District Updates

Lewis and Clark District Scouters,

Below you will find a few updates for the district:

Halloween Trunk or Treat

I know we are all struggling to get new youth involved in scouting since we were unable to have recruiting events in the class rooms this year. Tim Steele thought that a Trunk Or Treat event might help us all bring some much needed attention to scouting in Great Falls. We have secured a location in the parking lot of the Hide Out Lounge 2401 12th Ave South. We will be there from 3-5pm on the 31st of October. The idea is to set up one vehicle from each Troop or Pack that is interested in Participating. They will have representatives from their unit handing out treats to community members. The treats can have a sticker with contact information for the troop or pack on it and if the parents are interested in joining scouts, we will have a sign up table with applications ready to be filled out and turned in to the unit of choice. I have attached some different options of labels and cards that can be used to pass out. Feel free to decorate your vehicle for the holiday, bring unit banners and flags. Dress up and have fun with the kids.

Cub Scout Chariot Races

Unfortunately due to the current circumstances with COVID we have to indefinitely postpone the Cub Scout Chariot Races that were originally scheduled take place on December 5th.

Cub Scout Day Camp

I am currently looking for individuals to get involved with running 2021 Cub Scout Day Camp. There is a webinar this weekend that will provide more information about Day Camp. Please let me know if you or someone you know would be interested in helping with Day Camp and/or attending the online conference.

Please let me know if there are any questions or concerns about any of the items above. Try to stay warm this weekend.

Yours in Scouting,
