Managing expectations and doing the basic maths that does mean that 83% of you will be disappointed.The two finally selected will therefore have an extra obligation to the other 10 applicants to do them proud for Scotland.The ReQuest2021 Steering Committee, along with Andrew Sharkey (Chief Commissioner of Scotland), will be reviewing your applications carefully during October.The captain of the Bark Europa – Leentje Toering – will also be asked to review your Research Project ideas.Sharkey may decide to contact you ‘locally’ for a meeting or chat as part of the process.We will announce the final two representing Scotland on, or before, 31st October 2019.Without wanting to get too ‘Political’ at all – in a time of deep divisions in the UK, and globally, I personally hope that this strong partnership project between England and Scotland will be a shining example and symbol of unity to the world via Scouting.Having come up with the concept of this project over 5 years ago now, inspired by James Marr of Aberdeen’s book, it will be a real dream come true for me for us to have two Scottish Scouts on board!In the meantime you can follow the project on…
