>BTW where is the next National jamboree?
National Jamboree's have been held at Ft. A.P. Hill (near Fredericksburg,
Virginia - halfway between Washington, DC and Richmond) since 1985.
They'll likely stay there unless the Base Closure Commission frowns upon AP
Hill. There is considerable infrastructure and investment in the site now,
and environmental regulations make the old pattern of moving Jamborees
every 4 years prohibitive.
In a note from our Western Region Scouting Director, BSA is overseeing $1m+
in construction contracts there now - focusing on the arena, sanitary
facilities, and a new water tank.
