In the summer of 2013 when 50,000 Scouts and Scouters get together for the first National Jamboree to be held at the Summit Bechtel Reserve you know there is going to be some trading going on.  My guest tonight, Todd Kelly is organizing the huge Jamboree Trade-O-Ree (TOR) for Boy Scout memorabilia collectors that will run from July 13th - 21st in the town of Mt. Hope, WV just a few miles from the Jamboree site.  Todd and fellow collector and business partner Richard Mori have made numerous trips to the home of the Summit to finalize plans for a national TOR that will draw Boy Scout memorabilia dealers and collectors from around the country.  In tonight's show, Todd is going to share the story of how he and Richard pulled together with the Mayor and City Council of Mt. Hope to make plans for the Mt. Hope Trade-O-Ree.  The TOR will be housed under a 4,000 square foot tent located in the historic football stadium that was carved out from the side of a mountain by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s.  Be sure to check the show notes page on http://www.scoutinghotfinds.com to get the links for TOR website, contact information for Todd and to learn how you can take part in the big trade-o-ree.
