Although all of the Klondike Derbies I have run have been for Scouts, the
one thing that was always a hit was the "soup pot." We had several huge
Booya pots. Each Scout was asked to bring one can of soup to check-in.
These were all dumped into the big pots with water to taste. Once the
appropriate temperature was reached, Scouts could stop by for a warm cup
Do not separate soups by variety, just mix them all together in the same pot.
Although there were far more bean soups than any other variety, the mixture
worked very well. We even served it to the governor, the mayor, and the
Winter Carnival royal party when they came to observe.
FYI we usually had at least a couple of feet of snow on the ground and the
temperature was around 0-10 degrees when patrols started the gold rush. We
automatically cancelled if the forecast called for a high below minus 20.
In those days I was in Minnesota, not Oklahoma!!
