Winter Camporee Provides Awesome Winter Experience

Posted on

From District Program Chair Mark Pishon:

North Star District battled 8 inches of snow last weekend during their Winter Camporee.  Klondikes were all over the place hauling equipment, water, and supplies and the boys had a blast racing in them.
Congratulations to Troop 514 for winning the Willie Award and Troop 69 for winning the Patrol Competitions.
All the attendees enjoyed the North Star District 100th Birthday Cake.
Patches should be available in 3 weeks.  Don’t forget to log Frost Points in everyone’s camping log!
We look forward to the Spring Camporee April 5-7, 2019.
