OLD TRAILS DISTRICT NEWS

January 11-13, 2019
With the rush of Thanksgiving behind us and the anticipation of Christmas and the New Year growing the anticipation also is starting for the 2019 Old Trails District Klondike Derby! We are now just a couple of months away from the Derby which will once again be taking place at Duck Hollow Golf Course in Uniontown on the weekend of January 11-13th. I would highly encourage each of you to share with your Senior Patrol Leaders the attached leaders guide for this event that was also distributed at the District Recognition Dinner a few weeks ago. Based on the success of this event last year my Co-Host Jacob Gower and I look forward to an even more successful event this year as we continue to serve the youth of our great district! 
 
All that being said an event of this scale cannot be pulled off by just two people, but rather we need the collective effort of the other Adult Leaders to help pull this off. If any of you would like to volunteer or have an Assistant Scoutmaster or Junior Assistant Scoutmaster that would like to help us out with the planning/execution of this event please feel free to reach out to me and I will get you/them involved. With the expectations of making this year's Derby bigger and better for the Scouts in attendance we will need all hands on deck to pull it off!
