Wrentham Scouts from Troop 131 took first place overall at the 2014 Klondike Derby, held at Camp Norse, Kingston, MA and members of Troop 61 earned third place honors in the Mountain Man Division. Also, Cub Scouts from Pack 131 won four ribbons.
The annual Klondike Derby brings scouts together from surrounding towns to test skills and endurance. The Wrentham boys arrived Friday night and camped out in 26 degree weather which was a bit warmer than years past.
In addition to taking first place, Troop 131 boys won several individual events.
Not to be outdone, members of Troop 61 took third in the Mountain Man division, where four Boy Scouts, ages 14 years and older, form a team to compete in a test of marksmanship, archery, axe throwing, log chopping, and skills of ingenuity and stamina.
