Scouts-L Mail Archive for April of 1999: Events
Mon, 19 Apr 1999 11:14:58 -0600
I have a request. As you all know, the number of messages which can be
posted here is limited, and many replies lose their value when they are
delayed a day or two until space opens up.
While I am very glad that so many local or regional events are happening
across the good old U.S. of A., please remember that you are posting to a
relatively small number of people distributed around the nation and even
The vast majority of us live much too far away from any specific site to be
able to attend these events. Please don't use this listserver to give us
the details of local campouts, training sessions, etc. Save it for
announcing national events or events that you reasonably expect to draw
scouts or scouters from large regions of the nation, not just a few
councils. That way, a lot of bandwidth is freed up for all the rest of the
great stuff that we can do here.
