Annual Northern lights Ice Fishing Derby

One hundred bundled up (well-prepared for the cold) fisher-cub scouts participated in the Northern Lights Annual Ice Fishing Derby on Medicine Lake this January.  A big thanks goes to Dave Smith from Pack 454 who organized the 2013 derby, the Northern Lights OA chapter and everyone who attended.

Klondike Challenge 2013

Klondike Challenge 2013 beat back the January cold snap! Scouts and Scouters from seven Troops across the district tested their physical and mental abilities at six new events, ranging from Crazy Cricket to Balloon Burst to Ice Carving. The District's traveling trophy for Klondike went home with Troop 299. Special thanks to the 14 intrepid volunteers who staffed Klondike, including a team from MnYARC and Venturers from Crew 299. Thanks to the Northern Lights OA chapter for having treats over the lunch hour, and Joe Sears for providing the broom ball gear, trophy and sage advice.
