In your message of 28 Jul 1994 at 0930 MDT, you write:

I am glad that Bruce submitted the information on Ham Radio access for
scouts and scouters at the jamboral this year.
I am the registration and promotion person for our district and I
thought I would give you a little more information so you would know
more about it. By the way if anyone wants to come and camp from
neighboring councils send me a message and I can accomadate you in our
district site or you can contact the council office at (801)582-3663.
We'd be glad to see you there.
The Jamboral is a council camp that has been held every 2 years. The
'Utah Heritage Jamboral is a series of four council camps that will
culminate in the 1996 camp which is the 100th anniversary of Utah
being a state. The theme for this year is a 'New Frontier'.
The location will be just off I-80 next to the exit to Park City, Utah
at a ranch on the hillside there. At the last camp, two years ago, we
had 12,000 boys with around 1500 adults counting unit leaders,
district, council staff and the display people. It is modeled to be
similiar to a national jamboral experience with entertainment, games,
displays, fireworks, Friday and Saturday.
Each person attending the Jamboral will receive a hat, patch and 3
pins that can be earned by participation in activities prior to and at
the Jamboral. Also each person attending will be given a packet of
money of 21 bills that they will be trading. Each of the 21 districts
will have a separate bill modeled after a Salt Lake City Bank note of
the 1860's. Once the person, adult or boy has collected all 21 bills
>from the different districts, they can trade the money in for a coin
that was made for the Jamboral.
The entertainment Friday night will be on four stages set in a square
with local musical groups and with the main attractiion of the Ellan
Bishop Show and his band who I understand has won a couple of Grammy
Awards (I probably spelled his first name wrong) and performs Western
Jazz. There will also be fireworks that night.
On Saturday, each district will have a game for the scouts in
participate in. There will be an Indian, mountain man type village
with tents, tepee's etc. with people in authentic period dress. There
will also be displays from people in the Forest Service etc. Each
unit will be encouraged to have a dutch oven or similar dish for
lunch that will be judged within the districts.
The cost for each particpant is $11.00 which I feel has been kept
Any questions, let me know.
