Mush in North Park

Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

Seventeen Boy Scout troops, hailing from Pittsburgh's Manchester neighborhood north to Mars, participated in the Seneca District Klondike Derby on Saturday in North Park. About 285 Scouts and 95 leaders took part in the test of outdoor survival and camping skills, said Roger Dickhans, chairman of the district, part of the Laurel Highlands Council. Boys, competing in patrols of seven, made sleds reminiscent of those used during the Klondike Gold Rush, carrying equipment to stations where they met challenges related to first aid, fire and camp building, rescue, and more.
