BSA Troop 514 Klondike Derby, 2019

Once again, BSA Troop 514, La Grande, OR successfully prepared snow shelters and slept in them for the annual Klondike Derby at Mud Lake, opposite the Anthony Lakes ski area. Eleven hard working Scouts, in an excellent team effort, dug a forty foot by five foot trench down into six feet of snow. ¬†From there, they dug three snow caves into the sides of the trench. This preparation happened on Saturday and Monday of Presidents’ weekend. ¬†Last Friday night, February 22nd, they slept in the caves and then participated in the Saturday morning Klondike competition .
