On Sat., Feb.09 2013 the 3rd Ottawa Scouts entered in the annual Heritage Area Klondike Derby which took place at Wakefield, QC this year.
This event in it’s 49th year, with over 20 challenges ranging from compass and fire skills to physical challenges like the infamous gully crossing 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 “cougar patrol” won FIRST PLACE in their category for the event! Indeed they finished with 186 points, just half a point back of the overall trophy winners. Congratulations Scouts on a great effort and fantastic result.
Go 3rd Ottawa!
