Feeding scouts a big task

IT WILL take more than 114,000 eggs, 22,500 loaves of bread and 48,900 litres of juice to feed breakfast to the expected crowd at the 2013 Australian Scout Jamboree in Maryborough.


There are now less than three months before the jamboree takes over Maryborough Showgrounds, bringing with it more than 11,500 scouts and their leaders from across Australia.


In order to store enough food to feed the crowd, organisers will use 550 eskies, another 550 food crates and 16,000 bags of ice.


Young scouts will spend their days on activities both onsite and in Maryborough and Hervey Bay.
The Fraser Coast public will be able to get their own taste of being a scout with visitor days scheduled from January 5-7.


Visitors will need to register for the open days.


The Australian Scout Jamboree 2013 will run from January 2-12.
