/uploadedImages/Public_Information/Students_and_Teachers/Scouts/1.jpgI 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 /uploadedImages/Public_Information/Students_and_Teachers/Scouts/6.jpghighest 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.

To all the volunteers working the WEF exibit ... Good job and keep up the good work! The conditions you volunteered to under are tough. however, the efforts you all are putting the future enginners and leaders of tomorrow will be significant. Jeff
