JOTA 2012

How big is your world?

JOTA (Jamboree Of The Air) is similar to other jamborees but instead of all the Scouts and Guides gathering at a single location, there are many stations around the world with each linked by radio.  It is the largest Guiding and Scouting event worldwide and attracts over half a million participants each year.
You can look forward to on-site crafts, codes to crack, outdoor games and challenges as well as ham radios so you can talk to Guides and Scouts at other JOTA stations in different towns, states or even countries!
The Winston Hills JOTA station is annually visited by over 100 Girl Guides and their leaders from across Sydney so you can look forward to making some new friends on site as well as over the airwaves.

When: Saturday 20th October 2012, 2pm-5pm (0300-0700 GMT)
Where: Winston Hills Girl Guides Hall, Edison Pde, Winston Hills (accessible by public transport)
How Much: Youth - $10, Adults - $2 (includes JOTA/JOTI badge)
Radio Bands: 40m, 2m, 70cm, Echolink VK2GGZ-L (353 879)
