If you are going to jamboree to Jamboree to see 38,000 scouts in correct field uniforms or even activity uniforms you are in for a disappointment.
Even though the BSA requires everyone to have a correct uniform and even though they will specify times when that uniform must be worn...it ain't gonna happen.
You will see the same mix of civilian and uniform pieces that you see in your council. Oh you might see a higher percentage of complete uniforms then you are use to, but what you will fin is just like home, if the unit leaders are wearing the correct uniform then the scouts in that unit will be also.
But believe me you will see the same, blue jeans and soccer shorts with uniform shirts just like you see now.
Jambo does have its own uniform standards though so the Jambo hat for the duration of jambo will be accepted as a uniform piece. The hats will be allowed to be adorned with collector pins, but only for the duration of the event.
Now what about all those belts? Have you ever counted how many scout belts there are? now why can't we just have one belt? Oh, and socks....do you realize how many different socks we have?? what's with that ?:wink:
