The Patrol will show their leadership by completing each station in a timely fashion. Yes, each station will be timed.

Your job as a Loyal Scout is to do your best as you are tested in skills that would be found in the handbook for Tenderfoot Rank up to Star Rank.  Signaling will be the exception. You will be awarded points on your skill set. Scout spirit will also be graded which will help you.  You are to follow the list of needed materials to carry on your Klondike Sled.  Your sled will be inspected and your Scouts will be judged on how they are dressed for weather! The patrol may be penalized for lack of preparation.  It is important that each Troop prepare for this event by going over Cold Weather Camping techniques ahead of time.
