2014 Council Jamboree Huge Sucess

What a great weekend that over 7,000 Scouts, Parents and Leaders experienced on October 3-5. It started out a little wet, but turned out to be a beautiful fall weekend with a little chill in the air. Following the opening ceremony on Saturday, the Cub Scouts headed off to over eighty different activities. Those included bike safety, crafts, pinewood derby, rain gutter regatta, and many more. The Boy Scouts enjoyed Scout skill areas along with archery competition. The highlight of the activities on Saturday were all the static displays from the Tennessee National Guard. Tanks, trucks, communication systems, climbing walls are just a few of the events. Other static displays were throughout the Jamboree and the one which got a lot of attention was the reptile guy with the big snakes. Also, the World War II display of equipment drew a great deal of attention as well. Our thanks to all of the ones that came to set up displays or activities for the weekend.

On Saturday evening the Jamboree participants were entertained by the arena show skits and the performance by the Mann Sisters. The end of the show was the ever popular laser light show. What a huge treat!

Our thanks to MG Max Haston and the over 150 volunteers to put on this great event. After months of planning, their efforts truly paid off for those in attendance. The next Council Jamboree will be held in 2018.
