Dear Scouts and Scouters -
If you are a Jamboree-bound Scout or have some in your troop, you should
know about the email list devoted to Jamboree Scouts - J97Scouts.
J97Scouts is a companion list to Jambo97. Jambo97 was first started to
provide a way for adult leaders and staff members going to the Jamboree to
connect, trade tips and ideas, and to prepare for this great event.(Jambo97
is just a few members shy of 1,000.) We have a number of Scouts on Jambo97
and they have contributed significantly to the discussion. Still, about a
month ago we started J97Scouts as a forum devoted to Jamboree Scouts -
thinking that their topics and style warrant their own meeting place.
J97Scouts is run loosely like a Scouting organization. We have a
leadership Council of Scouts from Jambo97 who volunteered to provide
direction in getting J97Scouts going. We have a Scout who serves as the
list leader - Josh Gana. I serve as the adult advisor to the list and also
host the list on my server.
We keep the two Jamboree lists in sync - mostly by cross posting from one
list to the other when something important comes in. And, though J97Scouts
is not fully moderated (messages get posted without going through someone)
I watch it pretty carefully.
To join J97Scouts, send an email to: J97Scouts@dynapolis.com
