Subject:  General Introduction

Welcome to the rec.scouting hierarchy.  This is an unmoderated
Usenet news grouping aimed at Boy and Girl Scouts, Girl Guides,
Cub Scouts, Venturers, Rovers, other scout-like organizations, their leaders,
and all people interested in Scouting and Guiding around the world.

Other news groups of interest to Scouting are located
via http://news.scoutnet.org


IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO NOT POST ARTICLES IN
THE WRONG GROUP.  PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS VERY CAREFULLY.

No binary files are allowed in any rec.* groups.  If posted they
will be deleted.

There are now four groups in the rec.scouting listing.  

Usually, an article should be posted to only one of the rec.scouting
newsgroups.

Rec.scouting.usa, is directed to the large number
of participants that are directly or indirectly involved in
Scouting (and Scout-like organizations) within the United
States of America.  This group is intended to be the primary
place for BSA and GSUSA specific posts.  If you don't know
if your post is BSA specific, please post it on rec.scouting.usa
However,  if your post is at all controversial, please post it
on rec.scouting.issues.


Rec.scouting.issues exists as a forum for discussion of 
sensitive, religious and political issues relative to the 
various aspects of Scouting and Guiding.

Rec.scouting.guide+girl is a group for members of organizations
associated with the World Association of Girl Guides and 
Girl Scouts (WAGGGS).  All parties with an interest in  this 
aspect of Scouting and Guiding are encouraged to participate 
in this group.  This is the international forum for Girl Scouting.

Rec.scouting.misc is an *international* scouting and guiding forum
intended for discussions of all aspects of guiding and scouting.  It is
not the place for posts specific to BSA or GSUSA, or where other
relevant national newsgroups exist; but those without national
newsgroups should use this one.  Questions about and ideas for
activities are most welcome.  Be careful to explain local terms for
international understanding.  Use whatever language you think will be
best understood.


Postings not related to scouting or guiding are discouraged.

If you have a useful item to be included wth this FAQ file
