Blue Ridge- Wilkes Klondike Derby 2024

Blue Ridge/Wilkes Klondike Derby

RESCHEDULED

Due to the weather forecast of heavy rains Thursday, Friday, and Saturday this week, the Council and District leadership have concluded that we will be postponing the Blue Ridge/Wilkes Klondike Derby to February 17th. The time and location of the Klondike will remain the same as previously planned for January 20th. For any unit that registered under the late fee price of $15 per person we will be working to issue a refund of $5 per person.

Please contact Lee Setzer at Lee.Setzer@scouting.org or (727)599-7129 if the newly proposed date does not work for your unit. Thank you all for focusing on the safety of your Scouts and sharing your concerns with the Klondike leadership. We look forward to seeing y’all on February 17th @ YMCA Camp Harrison!
