Saturday 29th July
After missing the turning we finally arrived at the KIJ site, we signed in and got our wristbands. We managed to set up camp just before the notorious English weather hit. That afternoon we decorated the event shelter and mess tent with balloons, table clothes, bunting and lanterns. We then had dinner which was spaghetti and meatballs, we got changed into our yellow t shirts, neckers and painted our faces with neon yellow rave paint. We jointed the parade down to the opening ceremony where we raved and partied until we could rave and party no more, in the rain. After the opening ceremony we came back to camp and settled into our tents for the first night.
