Where I stayed
Indiana university, Teter boarding block
Early get up, of course, breakfast of college food, then a quick cross country trip to the Edinburgh Outlet Mall.
We could do this if we were ther at opening to get back for the very important Scavenger Hunt at 12:45pm. The drive was through green forest on mostly two lane roads. Fairly quick at 55mph (about 90 kmh) . We all got to shop for about two hours. Prices are very low for Australian dollar here. Most of the crew bought a little something. Quick return journey, staying to the right, we arrived back with a few minutes to spare. The team went on the scavenger hunt while Mr T did his job of editor of the newsletter. This meant I had to get a group of volunteers to write an article for the daily newspaper, edit that and desktop publish it. We ended up with journalists from many US states. Strangely, non of these students had a laptop or tablet and only one sent the article by texting
Talking about winners... The Bossley crew took on the scavenger hunt and WON it. The required organization, cooperation, management, speed, agility and of course problem solving and lots of brains. Go Bossley!
MrsT and others were busy doing extra supervision duties.
Dinner at 5-6:00pm
Then the VARIETY SHOW. Teams are asked to bring a piece to entertain. We didnt quite make the cut off with our singing, but we did join the FPSPI choir as a result.
Students presented in the large auditorium, they were all excellent. Our team had a choir practice earlier in the day also. They were the final act after the awards. The variety show was excellent, especially the New Zealnd team, no prizes for their "all black" effort, and the FPSPI Choir, with guest soloist Mr Robert Morey. Go Bossley!
In the evening their is a dance for the juniors and middle school and a separate dance for seniors. We got to supervise, just like a school dance.
