This weekend was the 17th annual Jamboree On The Internet. It grew up from the Jamboree On The Air, an opportunity for Scouts and Guides from all over the world to have a chance to chat together and get to know one another a little more personally. Throughout the weekend THOUSANDS of Scouts connect their computers to the official site at JOTAJOTI.org and ScoutLink to participate. Two local groups registered as official JOTI stations in the Three Harbors Council – Troop 300 in Waterford, and Troop 328 in Salem. (Others may have participated, but not registered their stations.)
There are Tigers/Joeys/Beavers online, and there are Scouts/Rovers/Venturers there too! There are lots of Adult Leaders and “ops” (operators) online in each of the groups to make sure things stay Scout-Appropriate and safe too. It’s kids being kids – talking about their favorite things in Scouting and how much is the same, while they discover their differences too.
A few of my favorite moments from this year’s JOTI included:
JOTI is always the 3rd weekend in October. Make plans to join us in 2014 for a great time making new friends and learning more about the world we live in! Check out the map below of the all of this year’s registered stations!
Scouts know how important it is to Do A Good Turn, so when the owner of an Apple Orchard offered to the Boy Scouts of Troop 300 the chance to come pick apples for donation to local food pantries, the boys jumped at the chance. Braving temps slightly above freezing in the morning, they picked a full pickup truck full of apples which will in turn be donated to local pantries to provide a fresh and healthy treat.
The boys were rewarded for their hard work getting to make and take home fresh apple cider and yummy caramel apples!
What is not stated here is that the #1 qualification for a Scouter to receive this award is the existence of an individual who thinks enough of that Scouter to spend the time to gather the information and write up the application with a well thought out list of the Scouter’s accomplishments.
Don’t always assume that because a Scouter is worthy, someone else will surely put in an application. That doesn’t always happen. If you are not sure whether someone has previously received this award, ask Margaret Williams.
She will be able to find out for you. Also note the deadline. If you are going to do this, you should be starting to gather information now.
Friday, November 15th, 2013 is the deadline for completed applications. Suzanne Duchaine believes we will have a total of 8 awards to hand out like last year, depending on our December 31, 2013 membership.
