SCGS Jamboree 2011 ~ More Fun Than Christmas!

I don't even know where to start to explain how much fun Jamboree is!  It's a combination of family reunion (if all the really crazy relatives showed up), Woodstock (and, no I was not there), a three-day non-stop party, and an amazingly intense learning experience - sometime all at once!

To start with there was the Geneablogger's Welcome Bag.  Please click on the link to see all the amazing vendors who contributed something.  No, really - go look; I'll wait.  See, I told you! This was NOT filled with the sort of trinkets that you quietly discard later.  Oh no - this was the "Christmas" part. We got tee shirts and CDs of webinars and beads and food and a PH testing pen and there were a lot of cool free offers and too much to mention - thus the picture.


On the first night Geni.com hosted an ice cream social for the Geneabloggers.  Here are a few of the pictures that no one has paid me sufficiently NOT to share.
Ooops, someone forgot to tell Randy Seaver and Cheryl Palmer that the hula skirts were not meant to be worn on their heads.  Their friend there is Peter the Parrot.  He will apparently be making another appearance tonight.

Sheri Fenley was explaining SOMETHING important to one of our Geni.com hosts.


More to come, but another sessions calls.


 (And someone, who shall remain nameless but his initials are THOMAS is complaining about the millions of pictures in all the blog posts )
