A great weekend of Scouting in South Jersey featured the second annual Pinelands District Klondike Derby on February 25th at Pine Hill Scout Reservation. Nearly 200 Scouts from 3 districts in Garden State Council plus a Troop from Washington Crossing Council formed 32 competition teams. The day even included snow flurries!

The Klondike Derby results included a lot of fun, some new friends, and of course, scores! Congratulations to the Raccoons of Troop 2022 for their top score in the Scout Division. Last year they placed fourth — that’s great improvement, Scouts! Placing first in the Senior Division was Team Gritty of Troop 2032. Last year they competed in the Scout division placing sixth — moving up a division and taking top prize is a great accomplishment! Each team also took the awards for Fastest Sled in their respective divisions!
