The Midnight Sun Council has been gifted a 28ft bumper pull camper trailer! This 2008 SPREE is in great shape as everything works as it should and the roof has no leaks! It even comes with a weight distribution hitch! Unfortunately, we are unable to use it for Scouting programs and events. With the donors blessing, we have decided to hold an auction to find a new home for this camper. The proceeds will be used to support our Scouting program.
Anyone who wishes to bid on the trailer need to visit their website and click the online auction button or download their app (APP available on Google or Apple under Last Frontier Auction). For your convenience the direct link to the auction is below.
Bidders will need to register and part of the registration process is providing a credit card. However in order to raise the most funds, it is stated in the rules that the successful bidder will be given the option to pay via cash, certified funds, or a credit card (4% processing fee).

Each year many of the Midnight Sun Council supporters contribute their Friends of Scouting donations through the Pick Click Give option.
This is just another option which allows Alaskan residents to pledge and pay a portion of their Permanent Fund Dividend (PFD) in support of the youth, volunteers, and Scouting. Below is a link that takes you right to the Councils summary on the PFD webpage. This is a great way to pledge now and pay later.
The deadline to make adjustments for donations from the 2023 PFD is August 31, 2023.
This years Tired Iron event went extremely well. The new location at the Fairbanks Lions Snowmobile Fun Club house served perfectly. Thank you to Alaska Vintage Sled Club, Tired Iron, and the Lions for putting on the event. Big thanks to Wilderness Search and Rescue and our Camp Ranger for the medical coverage of the races, and special thanks go to the Scouters that came out to set up! Without the volunteers and organizations coming together it surely would not have gone so smoothly. Looking forward to doing this again next year!
