On Sat., Feb.07 2015 the 3rd Ottawa Scouts entered in the annual Heritage Area Klondike Derby which took place at Lac Beauchamp, QC this year.
This event is in its 51st year, with over 20 challenges ranging from hill traverse and fire skills to physical challenges like the infamous gully crossing. Success demands a high level of teamwork and cooperation.
We are proud to say that our team of Scouts, a mix of first, second & third year scouts competing as “mongoose patrol” won FIRST PLACE in their category for the event! (Intermediate Category) Congratulations Scouts on a great effort and fantastic result.
3rd Ottawa Venturers supported the event this year, serving 70 litres of hot chocolate at morning & afternoon stations, paying back for their past years of lounging at the HC station.
Go 3rd Ottawa!
