In 1960, Concho Valley sent it largest contingent ever with four troops to Colorado Springs, CO.  We are looking for more information on these four troops.

The 1960 National Jamboree was held as part of the celebration of the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America, known at the Golden Jubilee Year of Scouting.  A news clipping from the Tyler Morning Telegraph, July 23, 1960 carried a story, titled "Boy Scout Jamboree To Open," about the Jamboree. 

"Explosion of an aerial bomb will signal the opening Friday at 9 a.m. of the fifth national Boy Scout Jamboree. 

"Simultaneously, the flags of the 50 states and U. S. possession will be raised on lofty flagpoles extending parallel in two long line in this makeshift city of some 56,000 Scouts form all over the world.  At the same time, section flags will be elevated over 2,400 wind swept acres now blanketed with 26,000 tents basking in the shadows of snow-tipped Pikes Peak. ...." 

Go HERE for story about the Jubilee Jamboree as told by Leon Broughton who was there.
