ScoutBase 2010 marks anniversary year
Over 10,000 Scouts, Scoutmasters and guests from across the Mid-South converge on Tunica and the Paul Battle Arena this weekend for ScoutBase, a jamboree-style event that has evolved into America’s second largest Scout gathering.
For over 95 percent of the Scouts in attendance, ScoutBase, sponsored by the Chickasaw Council of Memphis, is the largest Scouting event they will ever attend.
The bi-annual gathering had a long run at Millington Naval Air Station in Shelby County, TN before moving its base to Tunica County in 2006.
Next phase of development lies with study
On Oct. 5, supervisors gave the official nod to a project designed to help envision new and different ways to improve the local economy.
Board attorney Andy Dulaney said the Tourism Commission had solicited and received proposals for a market analysis. They had received three proposals and ultimately selected PricewaterhouseCoopers to conduct the study.
Dulaney noted that PwC had also conducted a market analysis of Tunica County in 1999. The study and expenses will cost $110,000, with the gaming industry putting up $50,000.
