The Jamboree was amazing. Cars just kept coming in all morning long on Saturday. They filled the parking lot up and I thought there was going to be a problem, then they found even more space. I was impressed that young boys of this age would be so well behaved. People just seemed to cooperate and want to have a good time. I heard the wait for lunch was very long. I can't imagine the fairground vendors would be so unprepared. But apparently none of the food vendors expected so many people to attend. And the weather really cooperated. It was perfect timing for that type of get-together.
