I'm not so sure about that. Okrand said "It generally is in a phrase 
following a phrase saying what the subject of jeS is participating in."

So when a person says "I participate" after mentioning an event, at 
least in Klingon it's quite clear.

Also in english, when a person says "There's a comic con tonight. I am 
going." Nobody would wonder where he is going to (unless he want to 
behave as a smartass).
