For 2017, Scouts WA ran over a dozen Event Bases across WA for members - Youth and Leaders alike - to get involved with JOTA/JOTI! Participants were able to join the Jamboree at an Event Base, or from home. Below are archived versions of the documents and resources that helped to run JOTA/JOTI 2017.
To help Event Bases and individual participants to participate with desktops, laptops, smart phones and tablets, Scouts WA created a Tech Guide with information on JOTI Radio, ScoutLink, ScoutWired, JOTI TV and more. Final version: v6
A Radio Guide for JOTA Bases was provided for Western Australian Scouts and Guides - including lists of frequencies, and more. Final version: v5.
The annual Opening Address was broadcast at 13:00, 21/10/2017. Listened to by Scouts and Guides via Echolink, pre-recorded audio files, and the JOTA Network, the Address went for 90 seconds in total. We thank the Chief Scout of Australia: His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd) Governor-General of Australia, and the Chief Guide of Australia: Her Excellency Lady Cosgrove, for their time in recording this for us. Final version: v2.
For Groups: Participants who visited an Event Base were able to earn a Badge onsite during JOTA/JOTI 2017.
For Individuals: Individual participants will be able to obtain a JOTA/JOTI Badge from the WA Scout Shop in the coming weeks.
