Scout Jamboree on the Internet

The Bishopdale & Harewood Scout Troup are taking part in the Jamboree on the Internet ( The scouts have been making contact with other scouts across the world. The camp is being held at a local school that has some excellent facilities for hosting this kind of event.

Even more remarkable is that all the computers have been donated by individuals, businesses and even a school who gave the troop six Apple Mac's. We are running various flavours of Linux, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS.

The 34 scouts taking part will be staying online for the next two days. So I guess I'm not going to get much sleep (poor me!) although I am looking forward to the World Cup rugby final and Andrew's pancakes and pizza!
