Jamboree Reunion - September 26th at Camp Geiger

As many of you know we still need to pass out the participation rocker segments to the boys and the best way to do this would be to meet up again for one last time. So we have decided on a date in late September in which we will have a Jamboree reunion at Camp Geiger. We have attentively set the date for September 26th (Sunday) at 3 PM. The reunion will take place at the dining hall and is sure to be a great time.

This time can be used for a variety of different reasons but I think most importantly it will be a time of fellowship as we meet for one last time as the 2010 Pony Express Council National Jamboree Contingent. In the past, participants have come together to swap stories, pictures, and patches in one last attempt to complete their own story that they will tell for many years to come.

This also provides a great opportunity for those items that didn’t make it home to be found because they got stuffed in someone else’s box, or simply to get answers to some of the questions that you still have. We look forward to seeing everyone in attendance and encourage everyone to attend this last get together to bring our amazing trip to a close. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me (Matt Becker) through email or phone and I will do my best to answer the best way I can.

I know that several of you either experienced the long lines at the trading post during the Jamboree, or heard about them, and for some the wait ended with an item already being sold out. Well BSA supply has decided to re-release a few hot items that sold out almost immediately at the Jamboree. If you or your son missed out on the Patch of the Day Set and would like the chance to purchase a complete set, or would like one of the 2010 National Jamboree Leather Belts, or National Jamboree Belt Buckles, or even the new Bechtel Summit T-Shirt and Hat you have the chance to get your hands on which ever item you missed out on. Just log in to your account at scoutstuff.org and click on the Jamboree link towards the top. If you haven’t put in your Jamboree Registration ID you will need to do that in order to view the Jamboree catalog. This reissue is only available for a limited time and all orders must be made by September 15th. Most of the items are not scheduled to ship until late October/early November.

$29.99 - $36.99




All the leftover National Jamboree Council Strips and Mic-O-Say Flap patches have been taken to the scout office and are on sale there for anyone to buy. If you would like to purchase more you can buy them there until supply runs out.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to seeing everyone on September 26th!
