The Shining, On Saturday, nearly 40,000 scouts gathered in the Boy Scouts of America National Jamboree in Fort AP Hill, Virginia, will be joined by thousands of people across the country through satellite feed, including many of the area.
The Old Hickory Council, which serves eight counties including Surry, is organizing a bright light at BB & T Ballpark, the new home of the dash of Winston-Salem, afternoon and night. The event will include a live satellite from the Hall of the Centennial Celebration at the National Jamboree in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America.
The National Jamboree began yesterday and lasts about 10 days. Notes for scouts from all over the country and even around the world to participate in activities, win prizes and meet each other. However, not all browsers are able to make the trip. Because this is the 100th anniversary of the exploration program in America, the national council wanted all scouts to participate in the celebration event.
“I have understood that it is a way to participate in the National Jamboree,” said Ken Badgett, historian of the Old Hickory Council. “It’s a chance to meet scouts in this part of the state, too.”
“It is for all scouts in the area of the eight counties of the Board of Old Hickory. I think we have some from outside the area well,” said Fred Patterson, director of District Council Old Hickory. “It is for all scouts, their families and the general public. It is a good way of linking the Jumbotron to participate if they could not go. I think it will be a great event.”
Gates for the event open at 3 pm with an afternoon full of activities for people of all ages. The board of Children’s Zone was created for children. For adults, the North Carolina Highway Patrol will have the golf cart DWI Challenge created and the Sheriff’s Office Forsyth County have the mobile unit 911 in the scene. There will also be a number of vendors and exhibits.
None of the above, a bluegrass band Surry County, will perform at 5 pm prior to the opening ceremony at 6 pm A sky diver will enter the stadium and Virginia Foxx will present a flag that was hoisted on the building the nation’s Capitol. All scouts will have the opportunity to participate in the parade of explorers from where they will be able to enter the stage of the unit with the flag of his troops.

Beginning at 8 pm, the satellite signal from the National Jamboree will begin on the stadium Jumbotron with special events, celebrity guests and a salute to the exploration. After the show, there will be a candle lighting ceremony and rededication at 9:30 pm The scouts in attendance will glow sticks and was asked to turn on the lights are dimmed for a presentation.
