It’s not a party until someone brings out a beach ball.
Thousands of Scouts, Scouters and Venturers assembled in a light drizzle Sunday to attempt to set the Guinness World Record for “most people keeping beach balls in the air.”
The current record, 14,993 people, was set in 2012 in Spain.
From my vantage point in the center of the action, I could tell this group was insanely large. But still, the Stadium Experience Team will need a couple of weeks to send their proof to the Guinness folks, so stay tuned and I’ll update this post if we set the record.
Even if we didn’t quite raise the bar, Jamboree Program Group Chairman Russell Smart sees the silver lining.
Said Smart: “We set the Summit record, that’s for sure.”
