JOTA / JOTI 2016

It was the Scout Jamboree on the Air and Internet this weekend ( JOTA-JOTI ). This annual event sees Scouts from all around the world communicating with each other. The 48th Scouts set up a radio and Internet link whilst the 1st Lockhart used the Internet and invited their Groups Beaver Scout Sections to join in. Over 20 different countries were contacted including Pakistan, South Africa, Taiwan, Australia, Trindad & Tobego, as well as closer to home, Denmark and Wales. The Scouts learnt a lot about how Scouting is run in other countries ie colours of uniforms, Beaver Scouts being called Joeys in Australia etc. A lot of fun had by everyone.
