2013 Button Gwinnett Klondike Derbey - Feb. 1-3, 2013
The thirteenth Klondike Derby is in the history books and fun was had by all.  It was a true Klondike experience with the cold weather and the snow.  The patrols were very competitive in demonstrating their Scout skills.  A big thank you to all of the town mayors, the event would not be what it is without your dedication.  The Scouts are very fortunate to have volunteers like each of you.

Third place was awarded to the Phoenix patrol from troop 827, second place was awarded to the Dukes of Hazard patrol from troop 650 and the grand prize, first place was awarded to troop 650, Huskies patrol.  The race on Sunday was cancelled due to the inclement weather.

As with the original Klondike Gold Rush, there were some heroes at this year’s event.  A big thank you goes out to the health lodge staff of Tricia Gallagher, Tonie Owens and Connie Fisher.  These ladies went above and beyond the call of duty in taking care of cold Scouts.  The health lodge provided warmth, hot chocolate and moral support for the many cold Scouts that visited.  Please tell them thank you when you see them.
