Klondike Derby – February 3-5

February 3-5 – Camp Joy, Carlyle, IL
Price – $6 per person

This is a Winter Camping and Outdoor Skills competition. Each competing patrol should have a Klondike sled that uses Scout power to pull it. Competition stations will be named after towns on the Iditarod Trail race map for 2006. Each station will test and score patrols on their team work, Scouting knowledge, and their problem solving ability.  Other activities include movie and popcorn night on friday night and tons of other fun stuff.

Camp for one day or both days.  Can’t camp?  Just plan to come out for the day.  This is a family camp and all family members are welcome to come out and camp.  If you are camping, let us know by Monday, January 23 at 5pm.  Please direct any questions to Klondike Derby Chairperson, Rob Smith at or 530-8298.

The Blue and Gold Banquet is our yearly time to recognize our second year Webelos as they transition into Boy Scouting.  It is also a great time for the whole Pack to get together, eat great food, and have some fun.  The event will be on Saturday, February 25, 2012 at 6pm-8pm at EK Elementary.

Our chairperson this year is Amy Sayler and she is looking for parents to assist her with the planning.  This is a great opportunity to participate in the Pack with a great event.  You can contact Amy at or 618-795-3540.
