Southshore Klondike 2013 at IMR!!!

Even though the weather did not cooperate (most of the snow melted Friday night), the 2013 Southshore District Klondike was a ROARING success!  (See the fires?  Roaring, get it?)

We had a great turnout this year, totaling 148 brave souls that came out despite the bitter cold.  The Scouts that participated competed in numerous events, each testing their abilities and promoting leadership & teamwork at the Patrol level.

The event’s activities included:

  • Fire Making
  • Shelter Building
  • First Aid
  • Lashings
  • Knot Tying
  • Orienteering

These events were timed and the Scouts were rated on their ability to work alone as well as with their patrols.  We had a bonfire at the Fun Bowl, where patrols were recognized for their achievements throughout the day.

The winners for each event:

First Aid – Troop 481

Knot Tying – Troop 481

Orienteering – Troop 230

Shelter Building – Troop 252

Lashings – Troop 230

Fire Making – Troop 252

The Games winners were:

Crab Walk – Troop 252

Ping Pong Relay – Troop 235

Jacket Relay – Troop 208

Snow Snake – Troop 108/Troop 205

Clothes Circle – Troop 213

Block & Tackle – Troop 252

A special congratulations to Troop 481 for winning the overall competition, and receiving the traveling Klondike trophy along with bragging rights for 2013!

A special thanks to Jeff Schlax and Tony Stocker of Troop 205 for putting on a great event!  Thanks to all of the other Scout adults and leaders that attended as well!  We couldn’t do it without you!  I thank you, and I know the boys do too!

As always, I am only an e-mail or phone call (414) 443-2855 away!

Yours in Scouting,
