My view of the BSA USA National Jamboree is an attempt to have
a large event, with as many scouts as posible, to include scouts
from other nations, all in the same place to do "EVERYTHING" that
is part of scouting in one week!
There will be show and do's, a merit badge midway, large stage shows,
BMX bikes, rifles, water activities, challenge valley (more than just
and obstacle course), unit and area gate ways, limited patch of other
stuff trading, and a LOT of meeting NEW friends from NEW places!
IT IS THE NATIONAL SHOW CASE for SCOUTING BSA style! Past issues
of Boys Life and scouting magazine have had promotions of this 93
event and also reports from past Jamboress. After Philmont, it is
one event that EVERY scout must attend!
Don Izard, still waiting for my '93 Jambo staff appointment letter!
