100th Anniversary Kickoff Recording Available

Were you able to listen live to the 100th Anniversary Kickoff audiocast yesterday?  For those following @scoutingnews you may have caught that I was unable to get the streaming media playing here at my location in Iraq due to network restrictions, luckily @boyscouts was “tweeting” the main points.  Now anyone who missed the live audiocast can visit http://audiocast.scouting.org to listen to a recording of the audiocast.

The audiocast was a conference call with:

  • Randall Stephenson, ATandT Chairman and CEO, BSA 100th Anniversary Chair
  • John Gottschalk, BSA National President
  • Bob Mazzuca, Chief Scout Executive
  • Tico Perez, BSA National Commissioner
  • Jack Furst, BSA National Executive Board

Not only did the audiocast cover the well known and published 100th Anniversary activities, it also covered some of the programs that have been less covered or not yet talked about:

  • Nationwide Geocaching Pinewood Derby Race to the Jamboree starting on March 6th, 2010.  Special Guests to help kick it off.
  • 100th Anniversary float in Tournament of Roses Parade on Jan 1st, 2010.
  • Adventure Base 100 which will tour the country.
  • Grand Centennial Parade in Washington D.C. on July 25, 2010.
  • Shining Light Across America- The July 31st stage show at the Centennial Jamboree, with great entertainment, broadcast live to celebrations across the nation and streamed live over the internet.

Jack Furst, who led Project Arrow, to find the permanent Jamboree site talks about The Summit: Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve and what it means to Scouting.  They also take the time to answer a few Scouting questions, it seems like membership was the focus of a large number of questions.  We hear about how we can make Scouting cool, the Hispanic Initiative

The above is only the tip of the iceberg of information that was talked about during the audiocast.  I’d encourage you to take 30 minutes to listen to the recording at http://audiocast.scouting.org.
