Stiff competition was the rule, not the exception last weekend for the 64 contending crews in this year's Eastport Yacht Club J-Jamboree.After several years of holding the event on one course, the fleet was divided in two this year, with each portion sailing its own course in different areas of the bay on two beautifully sunny and pleasant days.The split fleet, which proved popular and manageable for racers and race committee alike, set the J/22s and J/24s on a northern course nearer to Annapolis, while the J/29s and J/30s sailed a course south of them.

While other Baltimore youngsters were enjoying the last two weeks of summer playtime before the start of school, 22 soon-to-be first-graders and kindergartners were getting up early and eagerly heading off to Hampden Elementary.They were happily getting a jump start on learning in Hampden's third annual "Reading Jamboree" -- a program devised and run by kindergarten teacher Sharon West, who gave up vacation time to work with the children she had taught in the previous school year.West said that when she first became a classroom teacher three years ago, she noticed that pupils did not perform to their full academic abilities until well into the school year -- a particular problem for first-graders during the first few weeks, when primary placement testing is done.

Frank Gosman's nightclubs are gone, but he found a new home for the country music show he started three decades ago: his Clarksville barn. Every Sunday afternoon, Gosman opens his doors to the Country Showcase America Jamboree, a show in the style of the Grand Ole Opry. Gosman, as master of ceremonies, tells stories, offers chatty comments and calls up singers from the audience to perform traditional country tunes with backup from a five-piece band. Halfway through, everyone takes a break for a supper brought in by a participant.

I inherited a collection of Boy Scout memorabilia. The oldest dated item is a jamboree neckerchief dated 1935. The first Boy Scout Jamboree was scheduled in Washington, D.C., in 1935. There was a polio epidemic that year, and the jamboree was canceled. Neckerchiefs, patches and other memorabilia had already been made. The first jamboree was held in 1937.Your rare neckerchief is worth more than $100.My chair has a painted mark on the bottom that says "Stephen Shorey." Where was it made?Stephen Shorey was a chair maker in Rochester, N.H. Shorey's Mills made 3,000 to 4,000 chairs a year in the 1850s.

DE KALB, Ill. -- If only there were a Boy Scout merit badge for counterfeiting through embroidery, Michael W. Welsh might be suspected as a candidate to receive one.He has other accomplishments for which more traditional civics badges would seem appropriate. He served on the De Kalb City Council for eight years. He got 43 percent of the vote in De Kalb's mayoral election in April.But now, how about a badge for seeing the FBI in action, up close, as they make an arrest?At the 1993 Boy Scout Jamboree that ended this week in Bowling Green, Va., Mr. Welsh, a Scouting volunteer, was arrested on charges that he peddled bootleg versions of the badges Boy Scouts earned for attending the gathering, authorities said.

Item: Banquet Fun Nuggets What you get: About 16 nuggets Cost: About $3.50 Preparation time: 3 1/2 to 6 1/2 minutes in microwave, 9 to 11 minutes in oven Review: I bought these dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets, hoping they'd entice my finicky daughter to add a new food to her diet. The new shapes did bring her to the table. While my husband and I couldn't get her to eat any of the nuggets, she did stage a little dinosaur jamboree on her plate. Children who actually eat their food will find these nuggets pretty tasty.
