30,000 youth and leaders arrive today

The youth contingents are pouring in.  Like our national jamboree, they let the local UK groups in a day early.  There are several ways to tell folks apart.  The youth wear yellow banded neckerchiefs, their leaders have green, IST are purple, and national coordinators are red.
Our Virginia contingent will be in the Plateau section with a direct view of the Hylands house to their south.  They haven't arrived yet but there is no doubt a long line of folks arriving in a very tight area and road system.
The weather has been around 70 degrees today and no rain yet - although it is getting cloudier.  I hope it holds out so everyone can set up in dry conditions.
