Gday Simon
I think its a fantastic idea to promote MW. Scouts are an ideal 
target group, mostly male and 12 - 14. The potential access to 
scout halls (and parents roofs) after the Jamboree is exciting.

The hard bits though will be organising it and getting the 
bodies and cash to do it. I don't doubt that the Scouts would 
agree but not sure how much cash they's put up?

I'd also sugggest we print a flyer (I am happy to donate this) 
for scouts to give to all the attendees to promote the venture 
so that scouts know before the jamboree it is happening and to 
take home afterwards to promote MW
