Hello list mates
a few Scouters have contacted me asking about my signature JOTT.
and they are under the presumption this is a Canadian Scouting event...
it started that way last fall when Dave Wiebe from 40th St. Catharines came
up with the idea but by the time the 2 of us finally worked out the
wrinkles and we agreed upon a date with input from a similar list of
Canadian Scouters it was decided for April. By that point we had interest
and participation in the USA, UK, AU, Finland, Holland, Germany, Mexico.
and many many more.Almost all correspondence on this event was done via
email either on the lists or between interested parties. there was an
article ran in our Canadian Leader Magazine and with the help of Liam
Morland we set up a webpage.
if you would like further information on this event or would like to take
part this year mark it on your calendars NOW so we don't forget :)
I can provide our URL if anyone is interested or you can go to
www.scouts.can and there is a link there!
thanks for your interest
BTW..all profit from the sale of the patches and medallions went to the
Scout Brotherhood Fund to assist 3rd world countries with their Scouting
organizations to date we have around 15,000 Canadian dollars (50,000 USA if
our dollar keeps dropping !!)
