It's time to talk again about JOTA – Jamboree on the Air. It’s the 60th Anniversary – with the theme:
Celebrating 60 Years of Connecting Scouts
JOTA JOTI this year is on the weekend of 20th-22nd of October.
This is NOT a criticism, but I’m finding a lack of coordination from Scouting organisations at both national and state level. Maybe I’m missing something.
If you’d like to help your local group, and haven’t got in contact yet, now is the time - they really need to start planning.
On behalf of NewsWest, I’d really like to know what other groups are operating so we can share plans and promote the weekend’s activities. A number of Perth clubs are already talking which is great.
Pop a quick email with JOTA in the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re up to something so we can collaborate.
Also, head to JOTAJOTI.info, the official World Organisation of the Scout Movement website for JOTA-JOTI.
