The Jamboree Origins
In early 2008, having expanded my Facebook friends list with many Maliphants, I said to Victoria Maliphant (who lives in Kidwelly [##49015]):
“I wonder how many Maliphants we could get together in the same place at the same time?”.
Her reply was “I dare you to try” (or something close to that).
Whilst planning my response to that challenge, I decided to use the term Jamboree because the word was used in the early 20th century (prior to its use in Scouting) to refer to “a lavish or boisterous celebration or party”, which seemed appropriate 🙂 .
So that’s how the 2009 Jamboree came to be, and 32 people were there on the day.
However, before the day was done, people were saying to me “you are going to do this again next year aren’t you?”
