Goshen Out, TMR Back on the List?

In the Department of Idle Speculation, the Roanoke Times is reporting that Goshen will not be the Boy Scouts new Jamboree site.

The Boy Scout Jamboree won’t be coming to Goshen Pass in Rockbridge County.

Jack Furst, a member of the Boy Scouts of America board who is heading the search for a new site for the annual gathering for over 200,000 scouts and volunteers, said Tuesday that the Goshen Scout Reservation was crossed off the list because of “a wide variety of issues.”

The Goshen site topped a list of 80 studied by BSA in 28 states. Development of the site would have taken years, and ultimately create 80 full-time and 1,200 seasonal jobs and cost $100 million to $250 million.

Does this put TMR back in the running?
