Sorry for the long delay. We have been very busy lately and have been trying to compile some interesting news for you to read. We are also at the moment busy with some up coming activities. We will be having the Echo Rover Nite to celelebrate our 4th year anniversary on the 26th September 1998. We also have the Community project coming in conjunction with the Diamond Jubilee Celebrations, not forgetting the JOTI on the 17-18 October 1998 and the Diamond Jubilee Camp in November-December 1998.
Nevertheless, we will always try to update our Echo News section for you readers to know more about what we do in our Rovering activities.
Until then, happy Scouting.
Train Trip to Tenom
The trip is unique as the train is a very old model and people nowadays seldom use the trian anymore. It is therefore a very nostalgic trip.
The Crew left the station in Kota Kinabalu at 8.20 AM and reached Beaufort at 11.05AM. The trip was delayed then as there have been a reported land slide along the way. The Crew reaches Tenom only at 6.40 PM, 3 hours behind schedule.
The Crew was welcomed by the assistant Rover Leader, Sharif Biok at
the Tenom Train Station as well as the Tenom Rover Crew members. A brief
gathering and dinner were held at the Tenom Youth Centre.
The next day the Crew visit the Tenom agriculture training centre to learn about paddy planting and farming, fish farming, poultry farming and breeding honey bees.
The Crew went back via train again at 10.00 AM and reaches home at 4.00

Some 50 people turn out for the event held at the B.P. House, the State Scout Headquaters. Most of them are Assistant State Commissioners, Divisional and Areas Commissioners of Sabah, as well as District Commissioners from the west coast areas of Sabah. The Website was officially launched by the State Chief Scout Commissioner, Mr. Awang Zainie Haji Suntim. In his speech he openly congratulated the Crew for helping the State to realised their dreams of having their own homepage without incurring any cost and stress that Scouts can also do it in line with the internet technology era. Awang Zainie was also particularly happy to know that Sabah is the first State in Malaysia to have its own official Scout homepage.
The Website can now be viewed at http://my.scout.net/sabah/sabah.htm.
