Jamboree Meeting – 24 March 2010

Since coming in from school this afternoon, I’ve been busy. I practiced my musical instrument, before dropping Harriet off at the station and being driven to my instrument lesson. I’m currently preparing for my Grade 5, and the aural tests are really very hard.

But from the lesson, it was back home for a quick dinner. After rushing that down us, Mum, Dad, and I drove to the meeting for the Jamboree.

Based in a very posh hotel which is part of the De Vere chain, the meeting covered many of the questions I had wondering the answer of.

It made me more excited than ever, and I’m now very much looking forward to Sweden. Of course, there will be so much fundraising and training camps until then, but the speaker (one of the leaders) left us with one last thought.

There are just 490 days to go until Sweden 2011…
