Why can't National do at the Jamboree what was done at NOAC? Have one (or
more) of the national patch trading societies run (police/manage) approved
trading areas? Its not impossible and would solve many problems. They
did at the last NOAC and it seemed to work well.
I`ve never understood the attitude of National to patch trading. At the
many OA Section events (OA members are some of the biggest traders) and Lodge
events, we have times (& places) when trading is ok and everyone follows it.
Thus patch trading doesn`t intefer with the regular events and there are usually
knowledgable traders who can help the newbies out.
Have a big tent set up near the Trading Posts for patch trading and ask that
patch trading be done at certain times. That would alleviate many of the
problems, I think.
