2014 JRSYSA Jamboree...WET!
The Jamboree started off pretty good after the threat of heavy rains. For most parts of central Virginia it was a lot of wet weather. But the rains didn't really start in Nottoway until the teams have gotten into the scrimmages.
However, the call came in to end the Jamboree and cut the event short due to the constant rain fall at Nottoway High School. Now it's time to get with the 2014 regular season.
