We have planned 14 stations to test the patrol's knowledge, skills and teamwork abilities.

To accomplish this we need adult teamwork as well. If each Troop can find one adult willing to host a station we will be sure to have plenty of action for the scouts. Following is a list of  events for which we will have the needed equipment. All we need is someone to time or judge the scout's participation.

Please email Scoutmaster, Brian Danforth at scoutman205@gmail.com. You may choose your top three events in order and we'll do our best to match you up.

At 3:30 p.m. while judges tally the scores, there will be two more activities:

Event-wide Sled Slalom Challenge (timed event)

Patrols will race their sleds around an slalom course on the pavilion grounds. All other troops will be inside the course to cheer on the participants.

Make Your Own Snow Goggles (pavilion)

What if you lost or damaged your sunglasses on an arctic expedition? We will have the materials for you to make your own pair of emergency goggles to save your eyes from the blinding sun or stinging blizzard.
