This is looking down at the lake in mid-afternoon. You could barely tell there were thousands of Scouts and visitors milling around down there.

As darkness fell, troops gathered for a very impressive flag lowering ceremony. Here's the Canadian contingent.

The Jamboree site was broken into several different areas. This is one of the sections we spent most of our time in.

Tower of Friendship

Tower of Friendship

This tower was made of very tall poles with rings bearing the Scouting emblem and the "To Friendship" motto. It was a great place to arrange meetings during the day.

Not long after this picture was taken we headed for the bus and the lures of beautiful downtown Wallace. It had been a very long day, and I can't remember having any urge to explore the town. All I wanted to do was to rest some very tired feet.

Jamboree patches

Here's a look at the official patches sold at the Jamboree. I bought several of each, and still have them today. So much for all of the speculation on the trip on how much we were going to make from selling these when we got back home. In all honesty, I'm glad I never got rid of any of them, as they are beautifully made and wonderful souvenirs of a memorable event.


McDonald's bag

Could this be the world's oldest McDonald's bag? I guess it's true proof that some people will save anything. I wonder what I could get for this on eBay?


We were on the road when the ABC show aired so I never saw it. Since this was about 10 years before home video recorders appeared on the scene it's sadly unlikely it will ever turn up. It would have been fun to look for any of us.


Barbecue ticket

The barbecue ticket was for the wrong date but they still fed us. It looks like I still have 5 cents to spend if the snack bar is still open.


McDonald's bag

These look like official stamps for postage but were just stickers. They made a great souvenir until they got wet during one of our rare Southern California rainstorms. At least the top sheet still looks good.
