The AT&T Summit Stadium was the place to be on Saturday afternoon, July 20, 2013.  Jamboree Today said “King, TV Star, and Bands Rock Jamboree Show.”

Wayne Brock, Chief Scout Executive, told the crowd he wanted three things from the Jamboree participants:

  1. Make some new friends;
  2. Learn some new things;
  3. and have fun.

It surely was easy to accomplish all three for the participants at the Stadium Show.  Although you’ll miss the sounds, smells, and sights, you could have watched the live stream or you can watch the recording on your own schedule!

Mike Rowe, (also in Scoutmaster Sykuta’s Day 6 daily update), admonished the crowd that:

  1. The Dirt Patrol is alive and well (look at Mike Rowe’s T-Shirt in the picture in Mike Sykuta’s update);
  2. A Scout is clean, but not afraid to get dirty;
  3. and work smart AND hard.

Mike Rowe said he did not want anyone to be “profoundly disconnected” from others OR work.

Rowe asked the Jamboree crowd to change the way the country thinks about skills and work, to understand the value of hard work, and to not be afraid to get dirty.

That message sounds much what I recall my parents communicating to me over 40 years ago.  It’s good to hear it again.  You might casually ask your son or daughter when they return home from the Jamboree what they thought of Mike Rowe mentioning “working smart AND hard.”
