Per Newsletter #4:
Be sure to check your mailbox in early spring because you will be receiving your first piece of SWAG (Stuff We All Get) with your next letter from the CMT!
You’ll be receiving one of the official round USA Contingent emblems to wear on your field uniform (right shirt pocket) along with some other info.
Later in the spring, all participants & IST will be receiving
  * Nametag (1),
  * Luggage tags (2),
  * another USA Contingent emblem,
  * Neckerchiefs (3), 
  * Jamboree Shoulder patches (JSP) from their region (4),
  * an Osprey 115L Transporter duffle bag 
  * an Osprey Hikelite daypack as their "SWAG Bag"
All this SWAG comes as part of your registration fee! There will be a chance for attendees to purchase more of some of these items, as well as lots of other cool WSJ items from BSA’s WSJ2019 online catalog link when it’s sent out next spring. Some of the items available for purchase will include a variety of shirt styles and colors, belts and buckles, hats and caps, mugs, coins and medallions, small duffles, additional neckers, slides, Nalgene bottles, camelback hydration units, and stickers. Be sure to stock up so you can leave a few souvenirs at home and have a few extras to trade with all of the new scout friends you'll make from the globe!

Lessons Learned

* If you can, bring a second uniform
* Cotton kills. Avoid cotton clothing as much as possible.
* Go to the Scout Shop and get some discounted patches for trading. (Ask if you can't find them. Bring 20 or so.)
* If you can, pack everything that you need for a day in a 3.5 gallon zip lock. Take your clean clothes out, toss your dirty clothes in. Squeeze out the air and seal.
