A little computer programming humor, Boy Scout Style:

KlondikeWinsInARow = 3
while KlondikeWinsInARow < 4:
….if ‘Troop 342 wins Klondike Derby this year’ :
……..print (‘ See the Scoutmaster wear a dress ‘ )

……..print (‘ Try again next year ‘ )

Mr D’s Cabin Trip

December 8 – 10 2017


There was not much snow this year in Grand County, the Alpine center was not open for x-country skiing or snow shoeing so the troop went for a nice hike in the woods.


Kings of Klondike 2017

One of the highlights for the year is participating in the Gateway District Klondike Derby, where Troop 342 has won ‘King of Klondike’ two years running (2016,2017, …).

PHILMONT or Bust – 2017

This is the Greatest Show on Earth!

Troop 342 was able to secure not one but two slots at the famed Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimmaron, New Mexico for 2017.  Both treks will cover approximately 80-miles

of scenic New Mexico mountains in a once-in-a-lifetime backpack activity.  The opportunity only happens every 4-5 years, so we truly feel fortunate to have secured another trek this close to the 2014 expedition!  Scouts ages 14 and above will be eligible to attend, but the Troop has more Scouts that qualify than we have available slots for.  Each trek is expected to have nine Scouts and three adult leaders.  The price of $800 covers the training hikes, a “shakedown” backpacking weekend, and of course, Philmont!

Scouts are encouraged to sign up early for an available slot.
