To keep the World as concurrent of events as possible thejamboree.org had to be updated after the Sunrise ceremony so it off to work for a few hours before a cooked lunch at 1pm.
Being the birthday of Scouting I decided to treat myself, and the rest of the Web team, to a soft frozen Ice Cream commonly known amongst other guises as a ‘99‘. Seeing as all the content for the day had been pushed into the Online Jamboree News I decided to investigate the Ice Cream, the ice cream cone originated sometime before 1806 as that is the first known picture of one. The soft frozen ice cream discovery has a far more interesting story, whilst at Oxford University Margaret Thatcher ‘invented’ it, that’s certainly something interesting to remember for a pub quiz.
Having just achieved a warm shower and feeling rather fresh at the time I bumped into Hoppo and others of the Web Team, somehow Hoppo and I drifted out of the conversation and began playing with a novelty flying Halo (Frisbee is a brand name) when several of the Go Jamboree turned up and we started meandering around the Adult Hub.
Some a reason unbeknownst to me we ducked into the Adult Support Centre whilst looking around aimlessly I checked next to my name for post and shockingly I had some, the IST badges had finally arrived! So now I had to track down the 6 lucky owners out of a sub-camp of 8,000! Knowing how long it had taken Members’ Matt to get the WSJ t-shirts out I knew it might take several unfortunate days.
Taking the evening to chill several of the Go Jamboree lot and I sat playing cards in the cafe with a unexpected appearance from the eccentric Caro that prompted a group photo, a prelude if you will to the full shot tomorrow.
Walking around the IST Bar a hysterical Charliestar phoned Mary saying that Coldplay were playing at the Gifts for Peace concert in the main arena. Eventually when everyone had gotten over the hype it turned out to be a tribute band Coolplay which, despite not being there, I believe were a rather good gig.
