Nice one Patrick, especially about the ten reasons, tongue in check always
goes down well. There is a couple of Rover Crews in the US, but they are
located near the Canadian Border, this shows that Canada does have some
influence on the US. I can understand the Swiss wanting to go somewhere with
out mountains. Kandestag International Scout camp in Switzerland is in a
Brilliant location in the Mountains.
As for the 8th World Moot here in Australia there were a 747 load of Swedes
came. 2 more female than males and all were leaders. After the Moot there
was a lot of talk about establishing rovers in Sweden, and more Talk after
the 9th as well. I still do not know if this has happened yet.
Rovers is the only scouting section that is growing in Australia, maybe this
is saying something about scouting. Or is it that with Rovers being totally
self governing that people were scared that Rovers will take away somethimg
of their Empire. This I can assure is not the case in Australia, if is not
for Rovers who act as volunteers at Jamborees and other functions, scouting
in Australia would be a lot more expensive.
