Last night I began the paperwork to join our local Scout group as a volunteer leader. You should have seen how fast the current leaders jumped for the papers and a pen for me!
In my usual style I began searching to see what is happening in Scouting online. Turns out there is a bit, but not as much as i would like. Our group doesn't yet have any web site (that'll soon be fixed 🙂
Anyway here are a few links I dug up of interest to me at the moment:
- http://www.scouts.com.au/ Our National Scouts
- http://www.nsw.scouts.com.au/ Our State Scouts
- http://www.southmetscouts.com/ Our Regional Scouts
- http://asquithscouts.com/ Asquith is a Sydney group who have a good looking site, perhaps a model for ours?
- http://www.canadabayscouts.org/ 1st Cabarita Mortlake Scouts have a parade and drumming focus which I would like to learn, join, model and enjoy!
- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portal:Scouting Wikipedia
- http://www.cmscout.za.net/ "CMScout is a Content management system for scouting related groups from around the world"
- http://www.escouts.org.uk/ is "Empowering the web for Scouts in the UK" and is a model I'd love to follow here as well. Especialy the hosting for Scout groups. This forum I have linked to is for "Website scripts: CMS, Forums etc…"
