This Klondike can be completed at any time from 2/10/2021 – 3/10/2021 The events can be completed anywhere that you would like, such as a park or other public grounds, that you choose, is available, and does not have regulations that the events could violate. Please sign up prior to beginning the event . There are five stations that can be completed in any order, and do not need to be completed in one day. The team can be the whole unit, or the unit can be divided into several groups and each is its own team. The unit may decide on a scoring system, if desired.
