Don't count on anything until after the Jamboree is over; then count on
seeing it somewhere around the end of September or the first week of
October. The reason, Jason, is because the four staff members that handle
most of the Eagle Scout Service stuff are out at the Jamboree, and all of
their Eagle approvals are being done *at the Jamboree*. Today, with the UPS
strike, I don't see anything else being done after today until the end of
the week, when most of the National staffers will be back at Irving (and
then, taking that Friday off as a "personal day", they won't be back to REAL
WORK until next Monday or so).
If you *really need the card NOW*, you can go to NESA at the Jamboree
Operations area and pick up your card. The check will be found by someone
sticking behind at National's main offices.
One of the good things about the Jamboree is that 80 percent of the total
National and Regional office staff (to include secretaries and clerical
staff members) go to the Jamboree site and set up as if there wasn't a
National office and work continues onward. If you get a chance (which I
wasn't able to do finally) to see it, it's a good way to see what your
National volunteers and professionals do while they are at the office center
