Many years ago, men raced across the Alaskan frozen wilderness by means of dogs and sleds.  Scouting has modified that idea to create a Klondike Derby theme as an activity for Scouts.  Each patrol builds a sled, collects materials and equipment, and prepares to embark on the Klondike and participate as a team in the derby.

Each team will act as a separate expedition, following a course to various Alaskan Cities.  Each patrol leader will be handed a sealed envelope with a map and instructions on reaching the "North Pole".  Teams line up at the starting line, and when signaled, head away down the trail.  A certain distance down the trail, the patrol leader opens the orders and leads his patrol onto their first city, where they will encounter a situation in which they must use various Scouting skills and sometimes ingenuity to solve the situation.  Each city is run by its Mayor, a leader from different troops, who runs the city and assists the patrol in solving their problem. 

 After the patrol completes the event, their tally card is marked by the mayor.
