Great Website that I had to share

The Greater Yosemite Council of the Boy Scouts of America has put together one of the most complete jamboree websites that I have seen in a long time. You all should check it out. The various aspects of the website incorporate Twitter, Youtube, and Podcasts is the best example that I have seen in a will that incorporates 21st century web technologies into a well designed website.

I know many people think that it is necessary to have lots and lots of web and web coding experience to create a website like this, the answer is not always. I know that is not a very clear or concise answer but alot of web technologies are out there that make it very easy to create a interesting and professional website without having to just purely deal with code.

So here is the link: please click here.

Jamboree Communication

We are now at 5 months away from the 2010 National Jamboree and I have not seen anything from National except for unofficial, mixed messages from various Scouting email lists about this event. I can't believe how little information staff is getting. Quite frankly I am shocked to say that I have not heard from my Subcamp chief for Subcamp 7 since november. I was expecting at least 1 update or newsletter from him by know, I know that December is a bad month, so I was not expecting anything then, but January has already come and gone and we are already on February 4. Maybe I have high expectations but hey communication is the key to ensuring the success of any event.

Well lets not ramble on or complain now. I am now sending out a request to the Scouting Community, to share anything you have heard about the Jamboree whether or not it is official, I am looking for anything and everything people know.
