Australian Rover Moot

Australian Rover Moot

Australian Rover Moots are the major national event run by Australian Rovers who are part of Scouts Australia.

What is a Moot?

A "Moot" (IPAEng|ˈmuːt) is a gathering of Rovers (sometimes called Rover Scouts). It was named by Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Scouting Movement in a letter to Percy Bantock Nevill who was charged with co-ordinating a gathering of Rovers at Royal Albert Hall, London in 1926. The word "Moot" is in fact an Old English word meaning assembly or gathering. The first World Rover Moot was held in 1931 at Kandersteg, Switzerland
