Because this jamboree is being held in the two week hands-off period for coaches, a policy instituted by the Maine Principals’ Association, the regular high school coaches of these teams will not be coaching. Parents or nonschool basketball coaches will be coaching the teams.
There will be a daily admission charge for each day which allows spectators to attend each game on the one admission fee: adults $4, students $2 and Children 12 and under $1.
Those seeking more information may contact the Bangor Auditorium at 947-5555.
