Well, the Scout Jamboree Prayer Book will be pulled out and there will be a Jamboree Memorial Service (Prayer book covers all the religions and is not as the ACLU claims a Christian Evangelical Book).

BOWLING GREEN, Va. (AP) - Four adult Boy Scout leaders were killed Monday afternoon in an electrical accident during the opening day of the organization's 2005 Jamboree, the Boy Scouts of America said.

Jamboree spokesman Gregg Shields said an electrical accident occurred between 4:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. Monday while the leaders were setting up camp.

Shields said no youth Scouts were seriously injured. He did not say how many sustained minor injuries.

"We're looking into it right now," Shields said. "We have an investigation under way."

One other leader and a contract worker also were injured but remain in stable condition at a local hospital, Shields said.

The killed and injured Scout leaders were from Anchorage, Alaska, said Bill Haines, Scout executive and chief executive officer of the Western Alaska Council, which oversees about 10,600 Boy Scouts and is the largest of three councils in Alaska.
