...Obviously a much more boy minded council that ones I have been in in the
past. Both Cherokee and Old North State Councils charged the youth, as part
of the fee, for troop and patrol equipment. Afterwards these became
property of our camp.
IMO, it's forced donation to the council.
The only modicum of a silver lining here is that these councils are in NC,
approximately 4.5 hours by road from the Jamboree. Our contingents took
buses and did not tour either beforehand or afterwards. In '93 Cherokee
Council charged abot $600 for the Jamboree.
