Shrine Club Jamboree mini-games are on the clock

How do you make the addition of two more teams into tonight’s 43rd annual Camden Shrine Club Football Jamboree more time-friendly?

You put the four mini-games on the clock.

Rather than the two, 12-minute quarters of football which have been in place for years at Kershaw County’s kickoff to the season, this evening, the four contests will be played with a 50-minute running clock.

That being the case, the games are scheduled to begin on the hour with the finale slated for an 8 p.m. start. Last year, with six teams and a starting time of 6 p.m. for the event, the third and final contest of the evening kicked off well past 9 p.m.

Here is the complete lineup for tonight’s pairings at Zemp Stadium in Camden:

5 p.m. Westwood vs. Buford

6 p.m. A.C. Flora vs. North Central

7 p.m. Andrew Jackson vs. Lugoff-Elgin

 8 p.m. Spring Valley vs. Camden

The football jamboree is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Camden Shrine Club and its Ladies Auxiliary. Countless hours are put into making sure the jamboree goes off without a hitch outside the playing field. Food and beverage concessions are manned by members of the organizations while game programs, which can be purchased for a donation, are also sold by Shrine Club and/or Ladies Auxiliary members.

The Camden Shrine Club is one of nearly 200 temples located in North America, South America, Europe and Southeast Asia whose aim is to provide the best care possible for children in specialty areas of Orthopaedics, Burn Care, Spinal Cord Injury and Cleft Lip and Palate all of which are performed at no cost to the family and performed at 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children which are spread throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. 

By attending tonight’s Camden Shrine Club jamboree, fans are helping the many charitable efforts of Camden’s Lake Shamokin Temple. A portion of the proceeds raised through ticket and program sales and items purchased at the concession stands will go toward the Camden Shrine Club and will then be used to help those in need.
