Klondike Derby Information

The Klondike Derby is this Saturday, January 31st at Camp Norse.  A timeline for the day's events is here.  Please arrive by 8:30 AM in order to be present for opening flags.  Please check back tomorrow for a pickup time.

The cost for Klondike is $5.00 (for food) and all participants must bring a water bottle!

Please remember to dress for the weather - here are a few suggestions:

Clothing - proper and warm for existing conditions.  Dress in layers of clothing.  

Footwear -  proper for existing conditions, no sneakers.  Wear wool socks over a pair of cotton or wicking ones. Do not wear low cut shoes. 

Headgear - to cover head and ears (scarves recommended).  Wear a head protector which has ear covering.  An added scarf will protect the face from the cold and wind. 

Handgear - to protect a vulnerable part of the body.  Hands should be protected with mittens covered with a water repellent shell.  Gloves may be worn, but are not as warm as mittens. 

 Have fun . . . and stay warm!
