Who can participate?: All registered Boy Scouts are eligible! Participating Scouts may also bring a friend (who must also register in advance).

How do I register?:

Pack a lunch that day and make sure to dress warm!
Note – this is NOT a Troop activity, and none of our leaders are part of the organization or running of the event (although some may attend with their Scouts). If your Scout is interested, make sure to register him via the link provided! Any Scouts who go that day, please take pictures!
