Participants in the 1973 National Jamboree

Comanche Trail Council

Troops 63

In 1973, two different National Jamborees were held at Moraine State Park, PA and Farragut State Park, ID.  Scouts from Troop 63, Breckenridge, had made numereous Philmont trecks and had attended several National Jamborees with the Comanche Trail Council contigent.  In 1973, the year Scouts were allowed to attend the Jamboree as an individual troop, 14 members of Troop 63 went with Jim Rominger, as Scoutmaster, to the one held at Moraine State Park, PA.  The troop was divided into two patrols, the Rattlesnake Patrol and the Scorpion Patrol.  The Rattlesnake Patrol made a huge map of Texas with a real stuffed rattlesnake on it to serve as their campsite marker.  Pictured above are twelve of the fourteen people that went to PA.  Notice that they were staying in Baker Tents, a very popular tent at that time.  We want to thank Jim Rominger for sending us this information!
