I want to congragulate you and your fellow ship-mates for a fine
exhibition and staffing at the National Jamboree. I had the chance to
visit the booth on Saturday and it looked great. I found the scouts on
hand and the others offering information on everything from NOAA to
celestial navigation to be informative and fun to talk with.
Good job! By the way, the scouts were handing out a nice color brochure
on Sea Explorers (sailboat on cover with quotation from Jimmy Buffet).
Are these available in quantity?
Best to you
