At the 2017 National Jamboree, each one of us will be hosting a region gathering and we want you to attend! During each of these gatherings, you’ll have the opportunity to interact with Arrowmen from across your region serving on the Operation Arrow staff. This will provide a platform to share stories and to make new connections.

The gatherings will be hosted in the Base Camp Echo dining hall where pizza and refreshments will be served. 

The schedule for these gatherings is as follows: 

  • Thursday, July 20th - Northeast Region
  • Friday, July 21st - Southern Region
  • Sunday, July 23rd - Western Region 
  • Tuesday, July 25th - Central Region

Each will begin at 8:00 PM and conclude no later than 9:30 PM.

Each gathering will feature a staff talent show, “Operation Arrow’s Got Talent”. Do you have a special skill or a hidden talent? Now you will have the chance to share your talent with your region's Operation Arrow contingent! The top contestant from each region will perform during the final Operation Arrow gathering in front of the entire Operation Arrow staff.

Can you juggle? Play trombone? Balance a fidget spinner on your nose? Perform magic tricks? To participate, fill out this short registration form by the day before your respective region’s gathering. Guidelines for entry appear at the top of the form. All selected contestants will be notified through the email they provide. Further details about the selection of candidates and guidelines for advancement in the competition will be announced at a later date.

Don't miss out on this opportunity for camaraderie, fun and fellowship as we fuel Scouting's adventure together this summer!
Yours in brotherhood,
