ANNOUNCE: Where to Stay in Europe'97 On-line Edition
Well, I've been behind the World Scout Movement's web site again last
weekend. The major change is that I've added the 1997 version of "Where
to Stay in Europe", or WTSIE as we call it.
The address for the guide is:
WTSIE'97 is a guide to over 260 selected Scout Campsites and Centers
throughout Europe. These places will be able to host you and your group,
either in homes or in tents (usually both), and will also provide you
with the necessary infrastructure, assistance (and usually material too)
to help you organize your camp activities.
Many of these centers also welcome scouters to help out as staff members.
If this is the case, you'll see a mention on the center's page. I haven't
uploaded the staff pages yet, but I plan to do it, too.
So if you plan to do a camp abroad with your patrol, your troop or your
Council -- hey, why not? Kandersteg is big enough ;) -- or if you just
want to spend a cool time with other scouts and scouters abroad, have a
look at WTSIE'97.
Or check WOSM's Official list of International Scout Events on the same
web site. But that's another story.
WTSIE'97 is actually a database. Rather than to offer it as a searchable
database, I chose to generate two web pages for each of the Centers (one
in french, one in english) and to register the whole web site with the
major web search engines (altavista, Infoseek, Excite et al.). This way,
you will be able to use your favourite search engine to search over the
site. Don't try this now, though. It takes them a few weeks to rebuild
their list of web pages; Currently, they still have the '96 pages in
WTSIE'97 is also available as a book, which can be obtained from the
Kandersteg International Scout Center (E-mail:
