Because of the weather there was no more camp fire, but we still turned off all the lights and ate the marshmallows in the Staff Room while singing. Here is a small sample:
In the second part of the day i went on hike: a great opportunity for landscape picture taking. Here is a small teaser: The rest of the photos are here.
The graduation ceremony was really nice. First a fondue evening with all the Staff and Marc Lombard, ex Director of the Center. Than we had a hike towards a camp fire but along the way we met all the “longtermers” which gave us a quote or an advice for the next 3 months. It was awesome! If you want to know what was said or see how it went you really have to come as Staff. Not even pictures could give you an accurate description.
Before graduation we had a meeting with mr. Cronk, chairman of the World Scout Committee. Those were a really nice few minutes. He’s really a nice person, with interesting views about scouting and very modest. The thing that really got stuck in my mind was that he said we could actually be 50 million scouts in the world not just 28 million as the official count is. This is because some countries don’t give an accurate count to the Committee. For example they knew there are 19.000 scouts in some country, but on a visit there they actually found 125.000 scouts.
But getting back to the subject of the post, we’re now working on our Staff Board. It will be a table, the table cloth will have the KISC crystal printed on it and all the people will be puzzle pieces. There will also be some extra pieces in one corner. And the season will be made up of a broken coffee mug from coffee stains. I’m really curious what it will look like. If you might have any ideas i would really appreciate if you could leave a comment…
I will follow-up with photos of the Board and of me in KISC pink. 😛
