Gohsen Not the Site for Jamboree

From the Montgomery NewsFlash dated Aug. 4, 2009 (eNews from Montgomery District - NCAC):

We regret to inform you that the Boy Scouts of America has decided to withdraw its interest in Goshen Scout Reservation as the permanent site for the National Scout Jamboree. The BSA identified too many potential obstacles in developing the Goshen site to its fullest and is pursuing other venues.The National Capital Area Council will continue to support the outstanding outdoor programs offered at Goshen Scout Reservation. This process has identified many areas that offer great potential in strengthening our service to youth. Goshen Scout Reservation will continue to serve as our council's classroom for character far into the future.

Bill Hagerty, Chairman National Jamboree Task Force and Al Lambert, NCAC Scout Executive
