Scout Jamboree on the Internet at Liss!
1st Liss Beavers, Cubs and Scouts will be taking part in the 23rd Jamboree on the Internet over the 18/19th October. This is a real Jamboree of over 1 million Scouts worldwide in a specially set up, and monitored chat room online over the internet. We have been very fortunate to be able to have some PC’s on loan and with the help of two dads have set up our very own internet café in the hut.
The Beavers and Cubs will be attending over the day, with the Scouts taking on the night shift in this 24 hour Global event. Hopefully we will then be able to make contact with Beavers in Australia and Cubs in America….. except in those countries they are not called Beavers or Cubs….
As part of the weekend we will be completing two very unusual ‘Bingo’ cards. The first is for countries (I bet you never see that at Gala) and the second is a traditional number one using secret Jamboree ID codes obtained by chatting with people worldwide. Already we have contacts building from as far away as Cuba!
1st Liss Scouts would like to challenge the world to building a human pyramid! Here’s what we have done…. can you do any better? Can you do a row from each section from your Group? A Leaders row maybe and before you ask out hut isn’t tall enough!
Contact us online over the JOTI weekend for our Jamboree e-mail address and we can put some of your photos up here. Our station name is LissUK.
