My sons Scoutmaster called his wife earlier. He said they were putting up a big tent, and the center pole hit some electrical wires.
That's all I heard so far.
Prayers for the families and for the Scouting program.

Thanks for that piece of information. Anything on from what State or Council they were from?

So much for 'be prepared'. Another body-blow of needless death to an organization that is held in too high esteem among those on FR.

That's horrible. I went to a Scout Jamboree back in 1973 in Idaho. It was one of the highlights of my life. I hope that, in spite of this terrible tragedy, the Jamboree goes on. It can still touch a lot of young boys's lives.
