To my knnolwedge there are currently three $(NZ)5 Phonecards in the
13th Jamboree, Trentham 1993
?th Regatta, Nelson 1994
6th Venture, Rotorua 1995
The first two show boats, and I think the last one shows abseiling, I
beleive that the NZ Association intends to continue the series.
I am unsure of the availability of these Phonecards but will enquire
tomorrow, and E-mail in the next couple of days.
As an aside, the card for the 6th NZ Venture, had defective printing
on the reverse side, that rubbed off when the card was used, this
didn't present too much of a problem when the cards were used in
town, but when 700 odd Venturers and leaders were using 4 phones, You
can guess the result.
The problem will be fixed for the 14th Jamboree, (Jan 96), as the theme
is Wilderness, and the site is in the mild of nowhere.
