I remember the Scout-O-Rama used to be held at the fairgrounds but we only
camped there during the state fair itself. North Star Scouting Memoribilia
always had a booth at the fair -- are they still doing that?
For those not familiar, North Star Scouting Mem...... is a group of old timers
who collect scouting stuff. Well, they used to be old timers but I was a lot
younger then . . . They had some pretty incredible displays.
