Can You Help Restart the island network?

There are several potential new Network Scouts (18 to 25 yrs) on the Island. Unfortunately there is no one to give them direction, as there is no Island Network Commissioner and the existing County team is somewhat stretched. If any one is interested in becoming involved, please contact DCC David Pearce.  David would also like to hear from any more potential Network members.
