Greetings Scouts and Leaders. I am sorry I was so slow getting this notice out, but I caught the plague as soon as I got home. I am feeling better now but am glad it didn’t hit two days earlier.
We had a GREAT time even when the bathrooms froze up we all pulled together and figured out a plan to get thru the night. We were blessed by a septic system recovery sometime during the night.
I had a strange feeling that the Spirit of Papa Paul was with us as he watched over his group of boys one again.
The weather was fantastic for winter camping and the nights only criiiiiisp but warming quickly. The snow was like sugar and hard to work with,but the gates were amazing.
We had sled races on saturday and Troop 1 Thunderbirds came in first with a time of 22.41 Troop 14 Owls with a time of 22.80 Troop 1 Dragons with a time of 23.06 Very close

Prize money this year was scarce as Klondike is expensive to run but the Committee will award Troop 7 FREE admission to Spring Camporee ( some limitations apply)
Thank you all for coming to Klondike and I hope you had Nightmares when you got home!
