KLONDIKE / SPACE DERBY
HOSTED BY TROOP 116’s “DUCT TAPE PATROL”
February 4th 2017
CAMP SUNRISE, BENSON VT
Registration starts at 8:00 and the event starts at 9:00
Come and compete in challenges like lunar landing, Earth’s last defense, spacewalk and more!
The event ends with a race through space in your space faring vehicle or object.
That’s right your mission is to boldly go where no Scout has gone before in your sled dressed up as an object that could be found hurtling through space. Rocket, asteroid, U.F.O., satellite or anything else that your imaginations can come up with!
Earn extra points towards your final score by having an emergency kit with the following items; life support/human repair kit, emergency water vessel, docking tether, multi-Purpose adhesion fabric, emergency caloric rations, the drink of astronauts, navigational equipment, nocturnal alien locator, space blanket, emergency rocket ignition system and a portable non flame, air activated heat source.
All events are based on patrols of 8 with a minimum patrol size of 5. Patrols with less than 5 will need to join forces with other smaller patrols, except for the race.
Last but not least, if at least half of your troop is present it’s a great opportunity to take part in the group OA election which is held at this event every year preceding the big race! Due to the earlier date of the Spring Camporee the election season is shortened this year. It will be difficult to get election teams out to each unit individually so, every unit that takes advantage of this opportunity helps the election teams out enormously!
