This is a big report so it may take some time to download. One quote from the report…

“This was our first JOTA-JOTI experience and I think the Scouts had more fun than expected. We really enjoyed chatting with all of the different groups around the world. Uniforms, badges, and awards were a common topic. One thing we learned is that it is very common for people in other countries to speak multiple languages. All of our conversations were in English, and for most contacts English was not their first language. Another fun thing our Scouts learned is that other Scouting organizations have co-ed groups. Our longest chat was with a remote group in Australia who were 4.5 hours away from the nearest McDonald’s. They were sad to see us go as we had run out of time at the end of our event.” – Boy Scouts of America
