AJ2013 NSW Contingent News

NSW Contingent Gear Still Available

You're in luck! Even though the NSW Contingent shop was busy, busy, busy from the start through until the finish of AJ2013, we still have a selection of items available for sale. Shirts and winter gear, hats and badges, even Kennys can still be bought.

So if you want to replace something you ruined at Challenge it! or if you want to get ready for the coming winter, we have NSW Contingent polo shirts in selected sizes, as well as some of our hoodies, sleeveless vests and long sleeved jackets. To see some of our great gear, click here.

If you didn't get to buy all the badges you wanted before your coach left the site, we have some of those left, too.

And if you forgot to buy a Kenny mascot (he's an action figure stuffed toy, not a doll!), we've got some Kenny's, too.

Buying is easy: simply download the order form, complete it and send it - with your cheque - to the address on the form. Orders will be fulfilled on a 'first come, first served' basis and will be mailed to you in the middle of April. Check below for the postage costs and remember to include that in the total of your cheque.


  • $5.00 - Badges or hat pins only
  • $9.00 - 1 x item of clothing eg. shirt, jumper, hat or 1 x Kenny kookaburra mascot
  • $12.00 - 2-3 x items of clothing or 1 day backpack
  • $19.00 - 4-5 x items of clothing
  • $25.00 - 1 x 100 litre roller travel bag

Remember, we don't have all sizes in all clothing items so the sooner you send your order, the better chance you have to receive the items you have ordered.

Any questions? Just ask Kenny.

NSW Contingent Bulletin #3

On the Contingent packing weekend we handed out the Bulletin # 3. If you don't have it yet, please speak with your Jamboree Troop Leader.

Along with Bulletin # 1 and Bulletin # 2 and the information on this website and in the Parents Guide and the Leaders Guide, after reading Bulletin # 3 you should know everything there is to know to be prepared to live your Jamboree dream in Maryborough.

If you still have questions and you can't find the answer from these publications or your Jamboree Troop Leader, you can always ask Kenny. For a kookaburra, he sure does now a lot!

See you in Maryborough in less than one month.

P.S. It's not too late to buy your NSW Contingent gear. The NSW HQ shop will be open for the entire Jamboree. You never know what you might find for sale!

Fraser Coast Ready for Hungry Scouts

Some of the 168,000 sausages required for AJ2013 ScoutsOn 20 November the Fraser Coast Chronicle featured an article - called Scouting for Snags - on just some of the food which is to be consumed at the Jamboree. Now we've all taken part in fundraising BBQs but I don't think any of us can imagine having to cook 168,000 sausages!

By kind permission of the Fraser Coast Chronicle, the article is here for you to read. Happy reading.

You can also read the original article on the Chronicle's web site.

NSW Contingent Bulletin #2

In case you need instant access to the Bulletin - or in case you do misplace your copy - you can download the Bulletin here.

If you have a question that is not answered by Bulletin #1  or Bulletin # 2, you can ask your Region Leader Liaison (listed on the front page of the Bulletin) or you can Ask Kenny a Question.


Shirts, pins, hats, badges ... It's important to accessorise!

Sure, we're still a few months out from Jamboree but a good Scout is always prepared.

Every Jamboree attendee from NSW will receive one Contingent shirt in your kit however you can order more. As well, you can order NSW Contingent hat pins, additional Contingent badges, and a blanket badge.

You'll be packing a hat to take to Jamboree however you might also want to order a second hat to take with you in case your favourite goes missing. Hats have been known to take their own 'holiday' whilst at Jamboree.

Check out the NSW Contingent shirt and to see the other merchandise available for sale.
