The 1st MALIPHANT Jamboree

Date: August 1st 2009

Venue: The Beaufort Arms, Stoke Gifford

Arranger: Bruce Maliphant [##48059]

WOW !!!!

What a day ….. full of emotions and happiness.
I’m sure we’ll all have specific memories of the day, mine is just a warm feeling that it went so well – many thanks to those of you who could make it – despite the best efforts of the weather to put us off!
Over the next few weeks I’ll try and collect/collate/publish any stories you wish to send to me – as well as any pictures of course!
The first pictures can now be found on the 2009 Jamboree Pictures page on this site – click and enjoy !
I think it’s fair to say there will be another Jamboree – it’s only a question of when 🙂

Some factlets and stories from the 2009 Jamboree …..

  • 28 people had said they hoped to attend
  • Some couldn’t, others came unexpectedly, so …
  • 32 people were there on the day (see list below)
  • The oldest person attending was Gordon Maliphant [##47073] aged 83
  • The youngest person there was Sophie Charlesworth [##49022-50002] aged 5
  • The youngest Maliphant there was Master Henry James Maliphant [##50001] aged 8 (Sophie’s cousin)
  • The person who travelled the furthest was Evelyn Morris [##47034-48001] who travelled by train from Upminster, Essex
  • The longest car journey was by Ken Maliphant [##48047] and his family from Beckenham, Kent …. and it’d still have been the longest even by the direct route (no further comment  …)
  • Bruce’s favourite quote/chat of the day (with Sophie Charlsworth):

    Bruce:    How old are you then ?
    Sophie:   5
    Bruce:    When were you born ?
    Sophie:   July
    Bruce:    Which day in July ?
    Sophie:   Monday !!!
    ……………. which is actually true, she was born on a Monday 🙂

  • The “event of the day” was no doubt 1st cousins John [##48046] and Ken meeting for the first time – I’m sure that will lead to some further meetings for John and his ‘new’ relatives too!
