Welcome to the mid 1800’s.  This year’s derby will take you back to a simpler time.  Your skills will be tested for that time period.  That means many of the modern conveniences were not available back then.  As you prepare your patrols think about what would be available and use those items to the best your ability.

Webelos/AOL scouts are invited to the event.  Please reach out and coordinate with those groups to enhance their crossover experience.  You can either blend them into your Patrols or create a Webelo/AOL Patrol with a Troop Guide to help them through the experience; just keep in mind their experience level.

And if there are young ladies joining your Troops make sure to extend the invitation early so they can prepare, whether it is as a separate patrol or a blended patrol for the day.
