This weekend I will be an adult advisor to a JLT course. JLT, Junior Leader
Training, is a course offered to train youth leaders in the Boy Scouts of
My advisee is giving the presentation on Communications. I have been asked
to do a "round-robin" presentation. For this topic I chose patch collecting
-- keeping in line with the KISMIF principle, we need something a bit more
light in nature.
Anyway, the real reason for writing is this: During the course I plan to
have my PC set up at the camp and a modem hooked up. I would like to show
what's available in the way of "Internet Scouting". I plan to show them how
to receive and send e-mail and acquaint them with this List, Arrow-l, and
various newsgroups. In general, I would like to try to drum up interest in
the Computers Merit Badge.
Please, if you are able send e-mail to my address between now and Saturday
(9/24/94). Information on how Scouting works in your locale might be of
interest -- ESPECIALLY-- from any non-American Scouters or Scouts. I know
there are files detailing international Scouting available but I think it
might be more interesting to the course attendees, if it came straight to me
as e-mail. Please post to me, rather than cluttering up this list.
Thanks in advance.
