Class B Basketball Event Center Jamboree coming to an end

National Sports

A longtime Class B basketball tradition will not continue next season, as Shiloh Christian School is no longer running the Event Center Jamboree.

Shiloh Christian has been the latest school to pay to rent out the Bismarck Event Center to house the 32 teams who play in it. Activities Director Brandon Lemer says the school has consistently lost money from the jamboree. Last year, the school lost $3,000. This year that net loss went down to $1,000, but Lemer says it doesn’t make financial success to keep taking on losses.

“Most of the schools were good with it,” Lemer said. “I actually reached out to them a couple months ago, because we knew it was trending that way. Of the 32 teams, there wasn’t a single one–we offered to every one of them a chance to pick it up and take it over, and none of them wanted to do it.”

Lemer says he shared last year’s financials with the other participating schools, and they were surprised Shiloh was even hosting this year’s Jamboree.

The Skyhawks plan to replace the lost Jamboree game with a home game next year.
