MARSHFIELD, Wis. (AP) -- More than 2,000 Boy Scouts and their families are participating in the first Samoset Council Jamboree in nearly a decade.
The Samoset Council includes six districts covering much of central and northern Wisconsin.
News-Herald Media reports the jamboree last weekend at the Marshfield Fairgrounds Park included a fireworks show, tomahawk throwing, jousting and two-man crosscut sawing.
The chairman of the events committee, Bryan Call, says he hopes the council will be able to hold the event every three years in the future.
