I maintain a listing of local and networked BBS systems with Scout/Scouting
related information (msgs, files, echo areas, etc.) throughout the world,
This file is posted regularly in several central locations such as the
SCOUTS-L archives, the IBMBBS forum on CompuServe, AOL, *P*, and many BBS
This list is kept currect due to the help of Scouts and Scouters who
communicate about new boards starting, and old boards dropping away (or at
least dropping their Scout areas). The list has grown from a list of 2 back
in the mid '80s to over 150 now in nearly a dozen countries. It is not an
"official" list of any kind, and is not intended to be all inclusive.
There is a list being compiled by Ray Dykes to post at NOAC (the National
Order of the Arrow Conference in the USA) of boards that are "primarily"
Scouting boards, with a few other criteria, and that list will be 100 - 150
boards long depending on space available.
There is also a smaller list maintained by Dave Tracewell, Moderator of the
SCOUTER and SCOUTING echo conferences available on Fidonet and many other
BBS networks, that includes just the boards that carry those echo
So, depending on what information you want, there are several sources.
You are welcome to a copy of my list, and I suspect, of the others too, to
pretty much do what you want with them (other than to sell them for profit
<g>)... I can send you one Email, or you can request it from the SCOUTS-L
