Update from Trusted Partner Service Kring JOTA-JOTI

JOTA-JOTI is coming soon. We want to give you a status of our product sales of this moment.

The orders come in daily with big quantities. The last moment to order where you may count on receiving your products before the JOTA-JOTI is also quickly approaching.

The last day to order and pay your requested products is October 13. Later orders will be handled after JOTA-JOTI because our team is then also busy packing to prepare for their own JOTA-JOTI 2018.

At the moment already one product is completely sold out and that is the SPACE CRUISER.

The Badge will also be sold out very soon. Nametapes and the main kit for this year being the Claplight are available in large enough quantities so there will surely be material enough to expand your JOTA-JOTI with these nice kits. So order NOW please, and process payment before October 13.

Then we want to remind you all that many  solder kits are available throughout the whole year so any day could be a nice day to have a technology program with your Scouts of all ages.

All comments, suggestions, and ideas are always welcome on info@kitbuilding.org

Do have a nice JOTA-JOTI.

Service Kring JOTA-JOTI

Is there some room left on the map?

The JOTA-JOTI Radio base is preparing for the contacts between Scouts world-wide during the upcoming JOTA-JOTI. And there are quite a lot of stations. Not only radio ones, but also many internet ones. So it will be quite a busy weekend.

The World Scout Bureau will activate its main amateur radio station 9M4S in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Most of the WSB Regional support Centres will also take part. The Europe Support Centre will be represented by LX9S from Luxemburg this year.

Yes, there is some space left for you on the map to put your JOTA-JOTI station. You can sign up at the Main Gate here: www.world-jotajoti.info/jamboree-map.

Be fast…we have issued thousands of Jamboree tickets already. Get yours and join in the Travel-Free Jamboree.

 

Team blog: game time….

Seriously? Is JOTA-JOTI about playing games on line?  Well, sometimes. In the form of a game, Scouts can experience new things in a playful and fun way. After all, BP had many educational games in his Scout programmes. So we followed in his footsteps and created a Game Zone. You find it in subcamp Antilope on the Jamboree map. Oh, right. You have not found the Jamboree map for JOTA-JOTI yet? Not to worry, it is here: www.world-jotajoti.info/jamboree-map .

So, what do I find in this game zone? First and foremost, our famous JamPuz game. More about that one in a later team blog. Then we have a completely new section with games from different regions around the globe. These are fun to discover other cultures. Try to taste a few of those, perhaps together with a Scout group from that particular region (over radio or internet connections).

Our specialty to challenge your Scouting skills, is the return of Sinbad. Scouts need orienteering skill with map and compass, extract important details from a story, use a radio and a smartphone together and decode a message. You will need all that you have available at a JOTA-JOTI weekend to help Sinbad find his lost items. Can you do that and crawl under the skin of special agent John Bont?

Check the Antilope subcamp on the camp and see if you dare take the challenge. Oh, by the way, you did get your Jamboree ticket, right? If not, quickly sign-up at the Main Gate on the map.

CQ….CQ….

All you ever wanted to know about the Jamboree On The Air (JOTA) is now one mouse click away…

On the occasion of the 60th JOTA, the story of the JOTA has been updated. With new “old” materials that surfaced from archives.

Discover how the largest annual youth and amateur-radio event on earth started with a coffee meeting in a snack bar. How a visionary Scout leader carried the idea forward and the world embraced it.

And what about those radio waves that connect World Jamborees to the world, ever since 1957? Well no, that appeared to start 10 years earlier, in 1947. One of several new facts that seem almost forgotten, now surface in the new edition of “CQ Jamboree”.

Don’t miss it. Get your full-colour printed copy by following the link below. The printer service offers free shipping cost world-wide now. Use the reduction code “ONESHIP” (valid up to 6 September 2018).

New activity areas and subcamps are open!

We have opened up several new areas on the JOTA-JOTI campsite. Most of them are not completely finished yet but you can already have a look at what is coming to you next October.
Notably at the Global Development Village: it has all the materials for the 2018 theme “Life on Land”. And there is the ECO badge challenge there in the making. Check it out!
Have you signed up yet for the 2018 JOTA-JOTI? No? Then quickly go to the Main Gate on the Jamboree map: www.jotajoti.info/jamboree-map.
