|JOTA-JOTI - an international success!|
The highly anticipated Jamboree on the Air - Jamboree on the Internet (JOTA-JOTI) went ahead on October 16-18, drawing in Scouts and Guides from all over the world.
The weekend was a lot of fun, as well as a great learning experience for Scouts of all ages.
Some Groups talked to their international counterparts on Amatuer radio, and others set up computers in their halls to experience different cultures online.
However, it wasn't always smooth sailing for some Groups, like 3rd Rose Bay Cubs, who ran into difficulties looking for a crashed satellite. But they still kept smiling!
Palestinian JOTA-JOTI participants were excited to connect with their Scout and Guides friends from Australia and showed us where to find them on the map.
Scout Leaders from Brazil also visited Girl Guides at Kingsgrove at their hall.
Overall the event was very successful and a wonderful experience for all involved!
