This must just be an ugly rumor. There is NO WAY to prevent trading at
the Jamboree, except not to have a Jamboree. Oh, there may be a rule
against it, but it will happen, rule or not.
As to the idea of no visitors, BSA simply can't afford to alienate so many
people. Over the course of the week, Jambo has more visitors than
participants. Besides, why would the BSA want to hide?
There may be some feelings about trading, but if we have to cancel the
Jambo just to bring trading under control, then something is very rotten
I think this is simply a misunderstood rumor. The dust hasn't settled on
the '93 Jambo yet, it is too soon to say what will or will not happen in
