  1. It made main-stream news. http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?section=news/national_world&id=8971105

  3. Sounds like a fantastic adventure and a good bargain too? Why the need to have negativity about the Summitt?

  5. He will probably be going by his Texas name of Koby Morrow although I don't think he will be taking his cowboy hat that they wore to NOAC in Michigan, nor his toque (no idea actual name the red hat from Norther Tier) he wore on the Canadian Odyssey! Maybe he does need a coonskin cap! LOL
  6. Old Grey Eagle I am sure you will be meeting my son. He will be bringing you a troop to participate in the Buckskin games up the mountain each day!
  7. qwazse-your quote is from my previous post where I was attempting to defend Jamboree to someone that was totally discounting, and insulting, the experience of Jamboree and anyone attending it. I totally stand behind your and anyones' decision to not attend for any reason. I enjoy seeing alternative adventures and how everyone pays for and organizes them. I am glad you had fun at the Jamboree you attended and I hope your boys have fun with their Scouting experiences.
  8. From the staff guide: In addition to providing transportation for the troops arriving at the Summit, TMS has a special program for our staff and volunteers. TMS will be offering shuttle service to and from Charlotte Douglas International Airport as well as Yeager Airport in Charleston, West Virginia. You will be able to reserve a seat through the TMS website for a nominal fee (TBD) for the round-trip transfer. We will operate on the following dates and times: Arrival dates and times: (all times are EDT) July 12, 8 a.m.6 p.m. (Last bus departs the airports at 6 p.m.)
  9. My son (hopefully Eagle by the summer) will be on staff as an OA Trek Guide. He will guide a different troop each day up the mountain to participate in the Buckskin Games and other activities in the afternoon. He is very excited and is looking forward to meeting many new scouts!
  10. My son attended the 2010 Jamboree. He had a great time and was quite overwhelmed by the number of scouts. BTW he did not earn a single merit badge. He met scouts from around the world and from all over the United States, which he still keeps in touch with today. He is attending the 2013 Jamboree at the New Sumitt as a Trek Guide for the OA and is looking forward to it. If you don't want to go because you are sure that you preconceived negative notions are correct, or for whatever reason, there is not need to insults it. BTW he has been to Philmont and also worked at Northern Tier.
  11. There are two types of Centennial Ring Patches. One is exclusively for those who participated in the 2010 Jamboree and has a little notch at the bottom with a flag and BSA. The other is just the ring and you should be able to find it on EBAY for around $2-$5. Good Luck!
  12. Please if you are going the plastic tub route buy Sterelite products as they are made in USA!
  13. The camp is located 40 miles from downtown Houston. The rumor that I have heard is that due to no tax revenue coming from the property the city of conroe is planning on emiment doamaining some for a sewage treatment plant.
