OFFICE MEMO Jamboree Impressions Date:8/12/93
I'm now home from the Jamboree and very, very tired. We published 7 daily, 8
page color newspapers, 7 evening leader's bulletins and a meeting of the folks
interested in computer networking.
I have in my posseesion version two of nationals graphics files. Not even
released to the field yet. Will work furiously to get them onto the archive so
you can have them also. Thanks to Carolyn Cummings and Kim Garett, both of
National, for letting me have them, and enthusiatically supporting my
distribution to you.
About our entertainment -- Louise Mandrell was chosen because one of the
members of Alabama had a heart attack and Tammy Wynette was also hospitalized.
Louise agreed to change her schedule at the last minute to help the Jamboree
out. Despite a lot of folks scepticism, her show was very well received. She
brought two Scouts on stage and made them the envy of the entire audience. Her
show was closed by thirty minutes of the most amazing foreworks and music that
I have ever seen.
I got the chance to sit in on an interview with the director and the program
chairman of the 1997 Internation Jamboree in the Netherlands. I'd love to go,
but probably will not discuss Jamborees with my wife for at least a year. In
January 1994, your Council office will receive information on the Jamboree. In
contrast to the BSA's National Jamboree, the event in the Netherlands will not
allow any one nation to send more than 10% of the total 30,000 attendees. If
you have any interest in attending, get the info from your Council.
