History of Scouting in
The following two articles were printed by the Trentonian newspaper on the occasion of the Council Show at Quakerbridge Mall, West Windsor NJ. Note that the articles discuss council history, with little or no mention of the Mall Show. I have another, very long article which I will, hopefully, post someday.
Quakerbridge Mall Show, 1985
I worked the Pinewood Derby track at the Mall for a couple of years. Remember the 8-lane track. The track captured the order of finish, 1,2,3,...8, and each kid raced on each of the eight tracks. That was a lot of work, from 9 AM to 9 PM.
Before council had access to the Mall, the Council Scout Show was held at the Eggerts Crossing Armory in Lawrenceville. That was really nice, we were outdoors and we had lots of space. The show returned to the Armory after the Mall became unavailable to Council.
