Yes, folks, the next National Jamboree is just 23 months away!
I offered to chair our Jamboree committee, after serving as a SM for our
council contingent in '93 and an ASM in '89, and a Scout in '64.
If you think you'll have Jamboree responsibilities with your Council and
would like to share/ask for advice among a group of us as the planning
starts for '97, please send me your name, e-mail address, Jamboree job,
e-mail me directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I'll offer to put together a list and re-distribute it. Perhaps we could
develop mutual e-mail distribution lists as a way to keep Scouts-L from
clogging on a single subject. Or perhaps someone has a better idea for us
to keep in touch.
We could share ideas on tours, tour companies, Jamboree patrol and troop
equipment (my favorite: patrol flys/structures that can stand up to the
Virginia storms) fund raising ideas, gateways, shipping equipment, special
behavior issues on long trips, etc.
We could also serve as a resource for our colleagues on Scouts-L who just
have a quick question about the Jamboree.
Does this make sense? Is anyone game?
