Hey all, next year I am taking on the position of Northeast Region Venturing VP of Communications (yeah, I know... long title..) but the point of the matter is that Northeast Region made a 7-piece patch set (featured below) for the 2013 National Jamboree and I'm looking to sell leftovers to help fund Northeast Region Venturing operations and events. If you want more info on what the profits fund, give me a holler! The set is made of a patch shaped and themed after each Area (1-6) in the Northeast Region and a top to represent the Northeast Region. They are $30 a set plus shipping. In advance, thank you for supporting Northeast Region Venturing.
Retrace the steps of the 1937 National Jamboree while hiking the All New "Baden Powell Hike". Don't miss the Memorial Day Weekend inaugural hike. A special 1917 BSA replica medal is offered to all who complete the challenge. This is the 2nd of 3 History of Scouting Trails and it circles the historic jamboree grounds known today as the National Mall.
National Conference..national jamboree..N400,000 paid to delegates daily for doing nothing..they are even paid for weekends..
I am not surprised at the quality of staff of federal, state and local government service workers as they are mostly products of slots- the same type the presidency has once again enforced on NIS! That singular presidential action of awarding slots to job seekers speaks volumes of the rot of our system: employment had never been by "what you know" but by "who you know". What other definition do we need for corruption? That a president would use his powers to give slots to whomever he wishes, shamelessly overriding merit, competence, competition and best practices. Is this not the bane of our productivity? Why then do we expect performance from products of such slots systems like Moro? Can you refine petrol from coconut? Talking about compensating the bereaved families, the monetary option would suffice -a meaningful sum of money perhaps larger than the over N12 million the national jamboree delegates are collecting in Abuja for "speaking for themselves & shamefully sleeping in such a conference hall"! Ta ...
Ok here's another oddball request. I need a red and white 120 troop numeral. The older fully embroidered kind that's all one piece. Still needing that 1981 National Jamboree Fort Moultrie Subcamp patch too, the one with the blue Liberty flag on it.
Do We Need a National Conference? The former Military tyrant and maximum ruler, General Sanni Abacha took us on a circus nicknamed National Constitutional Conference between 1994 and 1995. The outcome was not implemented. General Obasanjo, took us on another national jamboree called The Nigeria Truth Commission between 1999 and 2002. The truth was killed before it started germinating. GEJ now believes that Nigeria myriad problems, challenges and pandemic corruption would be resolved in the conference. My Christian faith instilled in me a very strong optimist spirit but I choose to remain a pessimist on this issue. It is not for want of qualified men that Nigeria is not great nor for want of resources. We have articulated our problems properly and we know that it is corruption and the capitulation of the rule of law. Will the conference force IBB to come to court and defend himself on Dele Giwa's murder and the stolen 12 billion dollars during the gulf war? Will the conference force our former military oli ...
MOVIE NIGHT AT THE MEETING! Sierra Blanca District has three CDs that Scouters may borrow, including the rev'd up edition of DOWN AND DERBY starring Greg Germann, Lauren Holly and Pat Morita.

Nigeria! The country of my birth, a Cat with many lifes! A city built on the Rock with a kwashiokored foundation. A nation contradicted by the intercourse of providence, environment and destiny... A country characterised by longstanding despondency; where international superstars with intimidating credentials are reduced to mediocres, where men of honor, integrity and high moral standing are easily made gulible; a place where culture of impunity determines ones social status; my place of birth, officialdom and corruption are the religions of your elite. Your problems are not amenable to any known modern/scientific theories or generalizations. My generation has lost the glowing opportunities provided by providence for socio-economic and political resurgence, which were and continued to be truncated by the old order. If it is not misappropriation of pension fund, it will be non remittance of oil proceed or inflation of the fund expended on the purchase of aviation official car or how 7 billion would be spen ...
We sent the best of our spent oldies to a National Conference to doze away and collect whooping sums of egunje money! Too bad! I'm sorry for Nigeria. Let's see what will become of their mumbo-jumbo national jamboree!!!
It is unfortunate that some fools are still fighting to keep Nigeria as one Country. This is another empty barrel of 'National Jamboree'. The bickering among the delegates only on the adoption of proceedings shows we are strange bedfellows. Two weeks gone and nothing has been said, almost all the delegates have collected allowances. I want to challenge anybody on the outcome of this conference..
Who is the chief guest of 4th National Jamboree in sri lanka?
Good luck to the official Philippine contingent to the 2nd Scouts of China National Jamboree for Aboriginal Scouts to be held at Pingtung Province, Taiwan on March 27 to 31, 2014. The contingent of 10 scouts and 3 adult leaders are from Chiang Kai Shek College.
Thanks to Pat McFarlane, I have some memorabilia from the 1960 Boy Scout National Jamboree. The roster brings back memories of the guys, some that I still see now and again, others who are dead. The route map is pretty amazing - train from St Paul to Glacier then south to Yellowstone and on the the then brand new USAF Academy in Colorado Springs, CO. A week there (biggest memory meals always being late from kids trying to cook over charcoal) then an overnight train back to St Paul. I think 1964 was the last Jamboree where large groups came by train. We would have missed a lot by flying!
NATIONAL DIALOGUE 2014. Rowdy session at commencement of National Dialogue on how to arrive at conclusion or on how to take final decision on any issue raised at the conference. Looking at the way these people started, one may be anxious of asking what will comeout of the conference. Let us put our finger across and be watching either is one of National Jamborees or a session that will put Nigeria on a fast lane to real unity and development. Our delegates welldone. Pls enjoy yourselves.

This coming week our little a Man whose not so little anymore heads out on his next big adventure. He's got his bags, he's got his clothes, he's got almost everything he needs. For 14 years we have guided him in everything he has done, next week he will be in West Virginia with 40,000 other Scouts at the National Jamboree. This past couple of months has been a growing experience not only for him but for Linda and myself as well, we've had to learn to let go and I can tell you momma is being strong but I know it's getting to her. Her Little bundle of joy is close to becoming a young man. He has been to Washington with his school, he has been to Summer Camp for Scouts, he has been to National Youth Leader training with the Scouts and also joined the order of the arrow which required him to spend two weekends out in the woods doing work for the scouts setting up summer camp. He now heads off to West Vaginia and then two weeks after that he is back at school starting his next adventure, Engineering School. I' ...

Tomorrow night Samuel attends his last Court of Honor as a scout before he ages out this summer. He reached Eagle Scout at age 14 and tomorrow he will get his last palm. Being a scout has given him so many incredible opportunities. He has sailed around the Bahamas (twice), has hiked and camped in New Mexico, canoed the Boundary Waters of Canada, hiked parts of the Appalachian Trail, gone white water rafting, repelling and mountain biking in Tennessee, and was fortunate to attend the National Jamboree in Virginia. He has learned to be self sufficient and self reliant. (If he ever goes on Survivor...he can make fire and shelter..lol) He learned the internal rewards of serving others. He has been taught leadership skills that he will use the rest of his life. He has learned that hard work brings great satisfaction and respect...and he has made many great friends. Scouts helped turn my little boy into a wonderful young man. I will always be thankful to Troop 9 at Buncombe Street UMC for helping shape my son . ...
Scouting has been a big part in shaping my life, I feel that I wouldn't have been half the person that I am today without it! This week we signed our son Chayton up for Tiger Cubs in Pack 540, signup was in the same school gym that I signed up in over 30 years ago. My new journey in scouting started last night when Dawn and I both signed up as adult leaders of Pack 540. I hope I turn out to be half the leader of the ones that helped shaped my life. From local Pack and Troop leaders to JLT staff, 1989 National Jamboree staff and OA, a lot of people had a great influence on me, I look back daily on some kind of experience that I had as a Boy Scout and now it is time to pass it on. Thank You Dad for signing me up for scouts, and being my Den leader, Cubmaster, and Assistant Scoutmaster, It all started with you!

Heard from Wayne Perry, president of the open about current events and National Jamboree.
When I was growing up, I went to church at a Baptist Church, I got my Sunday School training/teachings there and the teachings of Jesus in the church, but, about the latter part of the 60's or early 70's, the church got an edict from the 'Southern Baptist Convention' that from that point on, that they would be with the Republican Party. Mom took me out of that church... I'm still going here, with those teachings, mainly, I follow this rule mostly, 'Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you'... the Golden Rule. When I was in Boy Scouts, we were also taught this rule as well. When I went to the B.S. 7th National Jamboree, in Idaho, in 1969, we were given a marble, with that Golden Rule inscribed on a gold band around a white marble, in a plastic case. I still have it today and still subscribe to that teaching.
Every 3 years Boy Scouts of America hosts the National Jamboree. Next summer Dominic Brown will be attending! Right now he is collecting pledges for a 10 mile hike-a-thon at Letchworth State Park on Oct. 27th. It cost $1600 to attend Jamboree and this will be Dominic's last opportunity to attend as a youth. Please help him get one step closer to his goal. We have to have all pledges turned in by November 1st. Contact me if you need more information and are willing to help.

Boy Scout Jamboree set for July 2013 By Jessica Y. Lilly October 22, 2010 · The Boy Scouts of America are bringing their 2013 National Jamboree to West Virginia. Scout leaders announced the official dates this morning and acknowledged financial support for the event. The funds will go toward turning tens of thousands of acres in Fayette County into a national scout destination. Phase One of The Summit project getting ready for the National Boy Scout Jamboree preparation costs are about $175 million. Scout leaders announced the latest donation this morning. A $25 million gift from the Suzanne and Walter Scott Foundation along with an undisclosed amount from Mike and Gillian Goodrich and some anonymous donors brings the funds above $100 milllion. "Phase One is where we're focused right now," he said. "That's to get the sight prepared for what we hope will be the greatest party this part of West Virgina has ever seen in the National Jamborre in 2013." The Scout Jamboree is expected to bring thousands of vis ...
