2019 Lenape Trail District Klondike Derby 
The Klondike is on Saturday, February 2 -- drop-off at 8:30 a.m. at South Mountain Reservation, Oakdale Area, West Orange NJ (corner of Northfield Ave and Cherry Lane, same as prior years) pick-up at 4:30 p.m. 
 All Scouts are expected to attend due to the benefits of total troop/patrol participation. For 14+ aged scouts, this is a prerequisite for the annual special overnight trip. If you can't attend due to a prior conflict, please notify your patrol leader. Note -- Because this event conflicts with the Pinewood Derby, Den Chiefs should contact Mr. Radics to ensure we have coverage for both.
 At this one-day event, patrols will pull a Klondike sled with equipment to various "towns" throughout the field, participating in challenges to test their Scout skills, teamwork and patrol spirit. Patrols will bring and prepare a hot lunch. The event will be held outside. No sneakers! Winter boots, coats, hats and gloves are required, and unprepared scouts will be sent home.
Registration and Cost: This event is free for all participants, but you must register by Wednesday, January 23.
Adult Volunteers Needed! Adults are needed to help staff the Troop 17 "Town", either in the morning, afternoon, or all day. When registering your scout, please include your volunteer availability on the signup form.
