Tom meets Scout Shops of Asia

tom meets scouts in taiwan

Tom was invited to attend the March 5- 8 Asian Pacific Region Scout Shop Conference at Yangmingshan National Park near Taipei, Taiwan. 

Representatives of many Asia Pacific countries including Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia,Indonesia, India, the Philippines, the Maldives and Mongolia were in attendance. Tom demonstrated the Expedition Classic and the attendees were fascinated by the automatic closing bottom entry, the way the hammock could be folded into a chair and the comfort. They could see many possible  applications because so many of these countries have hot and jungly terrain.

All of the Scout Shop representatives took samples of Hennessy Hammocks and accessories back to their respective countries for consideration. Tom said he had a wonderful time meeting Scouts from so many parts of the world and enjoying the hospitality of the Taiwanese contingent. Tom learned some very interesting facts;  for example, there are more Scouts in Malaysia than all of the United States, that there are more Muslim Scouts than there are Christian Scouts and that all Scouts have a common motto on their uniforms:  "Making the World a Better Place".
