I thought today would be easy. We didn’t have to be in to start the exhibit until 11:00 or was it 12:00 or was it 1:00. It finally was 1:00. Great, have a late breakfast, maybe catch up on some email. Cool.
We arrived on site about 12:30 got ready to go and then someone wanted to take a picture at 1:00. That happened to be the same time about a 100 scouts entered the area. We didn’t get the picture done.
We only operated 4 hours but had about 649 scouts and adults go through the exhibit. That is a rate of 162 per hour. The highest rate per hour of attendance yet.
The day was hot with a temp in the 90’s and humidity about the same. It was a black flag day according to the scouts. That means one quart of water per hour should be consumed. It sounds like a lot but you need it.
We had 12 great volunteers that were able to “go with the flow”.
I was told I need to get a job as a carnival hawker. Apparently I did a good job of getting the kids into the exhibit.
We were tired by the time 5:00 rolled around.
That’s all for today.
