August 26, 2019 – As part of the 24th World Scout Jamboree, which took place in West Virginia, in the United States of America, from July 22 to August 2 this year, the Croatian Scout Alliance had the chance to participate, socialize and share experiences with 45,000 scouts from 150 countries.
In addition to sporting activities, the participants had the opportunity to educate themselves but also promote the country they came from through their cultural heritage.
On this occasion, Croatian scouts presented the Sinj Alka and the town of Sinj, to the general delight of all participants. As a special feature, all visitors had the opportunity to play a version of the Sinj Alka. The scouts ran in pairs, one (horse) carrying the other (alkar) on their back while trying to aim the alka. The most successful participants received commemorative souvenirs for the award, which were provided by the Sinj Tourist Board and the Sinjska Alka Museum.
The Sinj Tourist Board thanks the Croatian Scout Alliance for this truly valuable promotion of the Inland Dalmatian region, as well as Ivana Šabić, prof. and Nada Jelinčić who participated in the realization of this event.
