Hampshite Winter Camp NOT JOTA Friday 13th - Sunday 15th October this year from Lyons Copse Scout Centre as Hampshire Winter Camp. This will be a big event for us and we will need all the help we can get. Please email me with your offers of support! Because it does not correspond with the dates for JOTA we will have 2m handies operating across the site to allow Scouts to ‘pass greetings’ to each other. We hope to enlarge the Arduino programming and maybe add some Raspberry Pis to the mix, but I need your help!

We will not be doing JOTA Friday 20th - Sunday 22nd October this year from Lyons Copse Scout Centre as Hampshire winter Camp and JOTA are on different weekends this year.
