Gold Rush! 2016 Webelos Klondike

Several Mohican District Boy Scout and Cub Scout units participated in the Council's Annual Webelos Klondike, held on February 6, 2016 at FDR State Park in Yorktown. Over 250 Webelos competing through out the day.

The Webelos Klondike Committee was led by Howie Gershman, Muscoot District Program Chair and University of Scouting Past-President. Mohican District Program Chair Dina Bochnik was also part of the planning committee.

Thank you to the following Mohican Boy Scout units that assisted at a number of stations.

  • Sled Inspections, Set-Up & Check-In: Troop 3 Ardsley led, by Sheri Marchi
  • Dead-Horse Carry Station: Troop 10 White Plains, led by Kevin O'Donnel
  • Sled Inspections, Set-Up, Check-In, Kim's Game Station, and Cocoa/Donuts Help: Troop 12 Pleasantville, led by Ira Promisel
  • Sled Inspections, Set-Up & Check-In: Troop 73 White Plains, led by Steve Owen
  • Mohican District Leaders: Paxton Louis, Dina Bochnik

Attached are a few pictures, taken by Paxton Louis from the finish line of the sled race.

For those of you who have participated in the Webelos Klondike, the event always begins with the sled race. Paxton should also thank Troop 165 Yorktown and eventual 3rd place finishers Pack 71 Mahopac for letting him know that he was standing at the finish line! Fortunately, the warning was very helpful and he survived unscathed !!!!!

Congrats to all our Mohican winners!
