Evanston Troop 924 Wins the Boy Scout District Klondike Cup

posted Feb 21, 2012, 8:05 AM by Mindy Wallis   [ updated Feb 21, 2012, 8:05 AM ]

Evanston-- Boy Scouts from Troop 924 took home the trophy at this years annual Potawatomi District Klondike Cup on Saturday, February 4th.
The event was held at Camp Oakarro in Wadsworth, Illinois. Like Yukon prospectors from the Gold Rush era, Scouts ordinarily pull their equipment dog sled style through the snow. The recent mild weather this year made mud the challenge, so most sleds substituted wheels for skis. Skills the Scouts were required to demonstrate included using a compass, tying knots, fire building, and figuring out a way to get the gear cross an imaginary river. More than 90 Boy Scouts participated.
