Though there hasn't been much publicity about the Jamboree on the Internet
(JOTI), you all should know that it takes place this weekend, October 17-19.
The World Scouting organization chose the same date for JOTI as for
Jamboree on the Air (Amateur Radio event).
I've included quick snip from the JOTI web site below, or you can visit the
site yourself at http://www.us.scout.org/joti/index.html for more complete
If you have some Cubs, Scouts, or Explorers participating in the Jamboree
on the Internet this weekend, please let us know what you did. You can log
in your participation and your comments at
The planners and advocates for more JOTI activities can use your
information to learn from this year's event. This site on Bowline will
collect information for anyone to read and will also be tabulated for
future planning purposes. Tim McCormick <firstname.lastname@example.org> is taking a
special interest in planning for future events.
So check out each of these web sites, and let us know what happens.
---excerpt from the JOTI web site---
The following text is extracted for email use from the "INFO" fact
sheet published by the World Scout Bureau and sent to all national
Scout organizations. (27 June 1997)
In November 1996 the World Scout Committee, noting that Scouting
already had a considerable presence on the Internet, and that
there was already an informal and rapidly growing Jamboree on the
Internet (JOTI), decided that JOTI should become an official
international Scouting event, and that it should be held on the
same weekend as the Jamboree on the Air.
the World Scout Jamboree on the Internet is to be held on the
third full weekend of October each year, starting at 00.00 hours
local time on the Saturday and concluding 48 hours later at 24:00
hours local time on the Sunday.
Special Internet jamborees may also be organized in conjunction
with local, national, and international Scouting events which are
held at other times of the year.
