The art of communication!


Whilst Dan was busy downloading photographs (6 January) for the website, he spent a few minutes chatting online (courtesy of MSN Messenger) using his alias, Magic. Below is part of the conversation (exactly as it happened) showing just one of the many ways we have got information back from the Jamboree:
