As far as I could see, there were three Americans at the World Moot last
year in Sweden.
I'd highly recommend that people write to the BSA's Intl Division about a
BSA Contingent to the World Moot. It's right next door to you guys (we
have to drive through your country to get there!) and it would be really
neat if we would see some Americans there.
Last year there was an article about the low number of Americans. I'll
repost it tomorrow when I get home.
