PANCAKE BREAKFAST: On Sunday morning June 16, the Erickson Flying Club will  be hosting their annual Father's Day Pancake Breakfast. They are always happy to see some Jamboree Campers come for breakfast. It is always delicious and gets us off to a good start on Sunday morning. So if you hear planes overhead it will be Flying Clubs coming from all over to support Erickson.

 

PAY-WHAT-YOU-PULL TICKETS-Every year the Jamboree sells raffles tickets. Pay-What -You-Pull tickets are fun tickets to sell and buy. People have contests , for instance winner pays, losers pay. Buyers have a chance to win cash, 1st prize $500.00, 2nd prize 300.00, 3rd prize $100.00. Most Jamboree Families and all Committee members have books of tickets. They can also be found at local businesses. If you would like to buy some contact us through the website. Winning tickets will be drawn on Sunday evening.

50-50's Everyone likes a 50-50 draw and we have two on Saturday and two on Sunday. So be sure to get in on the draw when our people come round.

AUCTIONS -

We have a very large auction, thanks to all the generous donors that continue to support us each year. All donor names are displayed on the item and also on a long list on our message board. They will also be entered on this site under the Sponsor's Page. We have a large variety of items and are very grateful to our donors. We welcome all donations large or small. We have your regular bag auction and a silent bidding auction area in the tent.
