World’s Largest Scouting Event Coming This Fall
While the world Scout jamboree is underway in Sweden this month, the world’s largest Scouting event will happen the weekend of October 15–16 at an amateur radio station near you. The 54th Jamboree-on-the-Air (JOTA) is expected to top last year’s attendance, which had just over 700,000 Scout participants from nearly 6,000 stations around the world.
Now is the time to include JOTA in your fall planning to ensure your Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers are able to participate. Complete details are available online at www.scouting.org/jota.
Make sure your council takes advantage of this great opportunity to introduce youth to technology and to international Scouting. For more information, contact Jim Wilson, K5ND, national JOTA organizer.
