Klondike Check in News

January 22, 2020


There have been two minor changes to the list of troops attending Klondike:  one additional troop has been added to the list, and another troop was clarified to show both the boy + girl units are attending.  Attached is the updated list.  The campsite assignment map has NOT changed, but I attach it here again for your convenience.
Reminder:  When you arrive at Little Bennett Campground to check in, you need to bring a completed copy of the “2020 Klondike Roster & Final Payment Form Fillable” which can also be found as an attachment at this link:  We will accept checks, credit cards, or cash with that form.
As I am sure you are all aware by now, the current weather forecast for Saturday for Clarksburg, MD 20871 calls for a high temperature of 45 degrees, a low of 31 degrees, and a 60% chance of rain showers, with an 11 mph wind.  Please ensure that your Scouts are prepared for this weather:  rain gear, hats, boots, synthetic fabrics / fleece / wool rather than cotton, etc.  You know the drill.
Unless something unforeseen arises out of nowhere, this will be my final communication to you all before Klondike.  Therefore, if you are waiting for any additional information from me, you will need to reach out to me.  I am really looking forward to meeting all of the many people that I have exchanged emails with these past few months, and seeing all of the Scouts enjoying the great outdoors.  I’ll see you Friday.

Yours In Scouting,
Steve Salaj  |  Potomac District Klondike Derby Director
