The 53rd Jamboree On The Air will take place on 16 and 17 October 2010.

Vuvuzela Morse Code

From the National JOTA Organizer in (of course) South-Africa comes the suggestion to have a game with Morse Code on the vuvuzela. Dave Gemmell suggests:
  • i) choose a place to practice so as not to annoy any one.
  • ii) don’t practice after 19H00 or before 08H00 or on Sundays
  • iii) wash/clean the mouth piece properly before blowing
  • a) send each character correctly in morse.
  • b) how many scouts can receive message correctly?
  • c) determine the maximum distance that can be achieved.
  • d) record the distance and tell us about it.

Maldivian Boy Scouts Stamp sets dated 1967

Among my many interests one is History. I keep collecting old writings, photos and information to do with history of Maldives, recently I came across this picture which I got from my good friend Muanz.

This is a picture of two sets of stamps of Maldivian boy scouts. If closely observed to the bottom of the stamp sets it shows a faded image of the Maldivian national emblem. (Click the picture to get an larger view.) It has a written text reading "International Boy Scouts Jamboree, Farragut Park, Idaho, USA from August 1-9, 1967".

However we also launched the opening of the 6th APR Internet Jamboree for the Jamboree participants from APR Village in the Jamboree site.
YAMG present include: me, Ari, Benz and Hafiz. Jessy also took part in the Jamboree however since she is also staff at the KSA (Korea Scout Association) she was already busy in tasks that KSA has assigned her.
The IST crowd we had were totally AWESOME !!! it was fun to work with the guys and we all had a good time. We ran all the activities in the APR Village. Participants who completed APR Village activities got the FRIENDSHIP AWARD.

The YAMG made a Patrol and we completed all the tasks of the Hwarang Award 2010 which was given by the Korea Scout Association. The YAMG members; me, Hafiz, Benz and Ari now hold the Hwarang Award.

The IST was made up of Scouters and volunteers from India, Malaysia, Singapore, Brazil, Taiwan, Korea, Maldives, Indonesia and Thailand.

The Youth Scout Environment forum during the Jamboree was facilitated and run by me and Benz since Ari was in charge of the Internet Jamboree and Hafiz was handling the APR Village the two of us were left to run the Forum.The forum went on great as the participants divided into three groups and each group taking part in outdoor observations making evaluations and preparing presentations based on their findings. Scouts concentrated on waste management, disposal, recycling, re-using and also general cleanliness.

39th World Scout Conference and 11th World Scout Youth Forum, Brazil 2011

Brasil 2011 Logo

The World Scout Conference is the governing body, the "general assembly" of Scouting, and is composed of all the members of the World Organization: the National Scout Organizations (NSOs).

Its function is to consider the policy and standards of the Scout Movement throughout the world, formulate the general policy of the World Organization, and take the actions required to further the purpose of the Movement.

National Scout Organizations must gain recognition from the World Scout Conference to become members of WOSM, and there can only be one NSO per country. In the case of a country having more than one Scout Association, a federation is formed for the purposes of national coordination and world membership. Member Organizations can be represented at World Scout Conferences by a maximum of six delegates.

The Conference meets every three years and observers authorised by their National Scout Organization are also eligible to register and attend the event.

Delegations usually include International Commissioners, the Scout responsible for relations with WOSM and with Scout Organizations in other countries.

One of the functions of the Conference is to elect members of the World Scout Committee, admit new member countries, and select the venues for forthcoming

World Scout events which includes the World Scout Jamboree, the World Scout Moot, the World Scout Conference and the World Scout Youth Forum.

The World Scout Youth Forum provides an opportunity for young members of World Scouting to discuss and express their views on issues of interest to them. Through preparing inputs and making recommendations to the World Conference and to the World Scout Committee, to which the Forum is linked, participants will develop the skills necessary to strengthen their capacity to take part in decision-making processes.

Each National Scout Organization is invited to send a delegation to the World Scout Youth Forum. Only individuals who are members of WOSM can be delegates to the World Scout Youth Forum. The participants must be between their 18th and 26th birthdays in the year of the Forum.

22nd World Scout Jamboree

The 22nd World Scout Jamboree will take place in the fields of Rinkaby, Kristianstad, Skåne in southern Sweden in 2011. The jamboree theme will be Simply Scouting. In 2001, a national Jamboree took place here with 26,500 scouts, and another national Jamboree of Sweden, Jiingijamborii was held here from 14-22 July in 2007 for the scouts.

The 22nd World Scout Jamboree lies near the coast on sandy ground surrounded by pine woods. Sandy earth helps rain water run off, and thus there is no risk of any parts of the jamboree camp area being waterlogged for the scouts. The campsite is approximately 1.5 km by 1.5 km. Small areas of forest divide the campsite into smaller fields. The temperature is varying, average day temperature is 22 degrees Celsius, while average night temperature is 17 degrees Celsius. The sun rises at 5 o'clock in the morning (05:00). Sunset is at 9 in the evening (or 21:00). Drinking water is available from wells at the field.

There is already an extensive water and power system in the ground for the scouts, dimensioned with the 2011 World Scout Jamboree in mind. In the southern part of the field there is space for the scout arena with a natural amphitheatre. There are sandy beaches near the camp area for the scouts with sand dunes formed by the wind, creating their own unique landscape. The scouts of the Jamboree in Sweden will have organized shuttle buses to the beach.
