Early numbers are in for JOTA 2013. We received 272 station reports, up 33% from 2012. However, Scout participation was recorded at just under 14,000. This is a great number but down 25% from last year. More work ahead in assessing the reasons behind the numbers, downloading all the photos, and reviewing station reports and suggestions for next year. The final report should be out in early December along with the filing of the USA report with the World Scout Bureau. Stay tuned!
