A few ideas inspired by the Messages of Mike Walton, Robert Craig,
John Bemis and others:
1) We have confusion developing because two very different projects
are underway at the same time with similar goals.
The order of the Arrow (a BSA program) is having a national
gathering (N.O.A.C) and are making plans for an informal and
unofficial gathering of Scouters with Rec.Scouting and Scouts-L
interests. This "Electronic Lodge" is looking to develop a patch
and maybe some have plans to encourage a formal group be formed.
I and others at the same time are looking toward a "World
Association of Electronic Scouting" a project that will be more
formal. We also are looking for a possible patch to signify
membership. This group would be world wide.
2) If a "World Organization of Electronic Scouting" is formed our
purpose should be clearly stated. Ideas for a formal purpose could
* The promotion and expansion of computer communication among
the Scouts and Scouters of the World.
* Developing a fellowship of World Scouts, with the purpose of
exchanging information that can be used to improve Scouting
for all the youth of the world.
