First off, if it's the Council holding it, it cannot be called a "Jamboree",
although I could see it being in the "Jamboree Style".
You should probably be able to find some information locally either from
the Scout Service Center ("their acronym may vary"), at a RoundTable,
by questioning someone (Unit Commissioner, District Staff member), or
possibly some of the staff for your council's Jamboree 2001 Provisional troop.
I assume you're referring to Troop ATTENDING, vs. CHAIRING...
When I chaired our district's Camporee in '99, I found a wealth of information
on the Jackson, MS, Council's web site and online Camporee Planner. I
found the link still on Scouter Interactive, but destination site is no longer there.
