Patches at Jamboree

Question: My son is attending the National Jamboree in August, and Scouts are required to wear an official uniform, but must remove patches that are from local activities (camp patches, local council, quality unit, etc.) . The Jamboree leadership was unsure whether or not he would have to remove his local OA Lodge pocket patch. Do you know the answer?
Answer: A scout may wear his local lodge flap on the uniform at the jamboree. He is a member of that lodge and is thus entitled to wear the flap as long as he is a member in good standing (ie he has paid his dues).
