    World Scout Necker/Scarf Day

    Has anyone else heard about this one? Seems that the idea is to wear your necker on Wednesday.

    no. founder's day is simply founder's day.

    iirc, this scarf day was promoted unilaterally by austrian scouts (?) around the centenary or wsj07 or some such time.

    there is no official sanction of such a day.

    cordially yours, TM

    I was meaning, didn't the SA launch a campaign to go to work in your uniform and to wear your necker and things for founders day? if not I must be getting my dates mixed up but I'm sure I've seen it advertised before!

    Was the "put a scarf on it" campaign a once off? Sounds like a similar thing.
