We want to make the Frontier Klondike better, and we need your feedback to make that happen. We have created an online survey that you can fill out to send us your thoughts. Please take the time to talk to your Troop and complete the survey.
You may also download a PDF copy of the survey to take back to your Troop. Please return the completed survey to the council office or bring it to a Round Table meeting. Surveys may be turned into Ron Mallicone or Eric Silva.
We hope to see everyone next year. Thanks again for all participating Troops for making it a successful Klondike Derby!
