GET READY TO PARTICIPATE IN JOTA-JOTI BETWEEN 19-20 OCTOBER 2013!
56th Jamboree On The Air / 17th Jamboree On The Internet
Jamboree On The Air (JOTA) and Jamboree On The Internet (JOTI) is an annual virtual global camp in which around 500,000 Scouts and Guides from all over the world make contact with each other by means of amateur radio and the internet. This year's JOTA-JOTI includes a special broadcast by Sri Lanka Scout Association Official Operating Main Hub @ Archbishop college, Nayakakanda, Wattala. JOTA/ JOTI Camp Chief, Archt. Prof. T.K. Nimal P De Silva, address will be broadcast on the radio or played to groups of Scouts and Guides at 8.00 a.m. local time on Saturday 19 October 2013 Wattajaree District camp.
Through JOTA-JOTI every Member of Sri lankan Scouts can make friends, exchange stories, experience different cultures and have fun as part of the largest activity in world Scouting. JOTA-JOTI also gives Youth Members an awareness that they belong to a worldwide Movement.
You don't need any technical knowledge to join in - just ask the right people to help you. Anyone with an average knowledge of computers can help you organise and run JOTI - all you need is a computer that's connected to the internet. To participate in JOTA you must have a licensed Amateur Radio Operator to assist you. There are no registration or fees required for your Group to participate, however we are required to prepare Branch and National reports on the event, and some form of registration of your participation will assist greatly. More on this later.
