Alison Butler

From: Guam

Age: 16

This is Alison from Guam, just wanted to tell you all a little bit about myself. I am 15 right now, turning 16 December 5. My twin brother is going to be participating in the jamboree with the American boy scouts. I have only been in a venture crew for a year. My favorite hobbies are acting, dancing, meeting people, and learning about other people and cultures. I was in soccer for a while a few years ago. I also did a bit of ballet and jazz, it was a blast. Havenít done much lately though. I am a vegetarian I am still not sure how I became one, it was by choice, but I am not sure what brought me to become one. Uumm.. I think that's about it.

The only bad part about going to Thailand for me is that I miss a crucial part of ski season.  Skiing is my life. I ski race for NJ and am on Ski Patrol at my home mountain Hidden Valley (NJ) <- yes there is skiing in NJ. I've skied up and down the East coast and in Utah and Canada (Tremblant and Blackcomb are my favorites there). Aside from skiing, I am a high school senior at an engineering academy in NJ. I like to juggle and to be involved in theater. I directed a play this fall, and have been working on my fire-juggling skills for the senior talent show. Occasionally I sleep, but usually I just spend the rest of my time doing things with my computer (web pages/burning CDs/capturing video). Corny Joke of the Day: Why did the bicycle fall over? It was two tired.

 

 

Caylin Gentile

From: Castro Valley, California

Age: 14

My name is Caylin Gentile. I'm 14 and as you can see I just recently started Venturing.  I like soccer, volleyball, and dance.  I'm in 9th grade at Castro Valley High School and love all sorts of music like hip hop, R&B, Rap, Puck, and little bit of pop. I'm an active person and I can't wait to meet you all. I don't have that much experience as the rest of you but since my brothers are in Boy Scouts I know quite a bit about camping and hiking. Both of my brothers are going to the World Jamboree so I wanted to go. I hope we'll all have a great with each other and have a wonderful experience.

Peter Giovanotto

From: Palo Alto, California

Age: 15

Hi, my name's Peter Giovannotto.  Iím an Eagle Scout from Palo Alto; member of Troop 5 and Venture Crew 30'06. I play guitar and soccer.  I enjoy hiking, camping, fire, mischief, sports, and paintballing.  Iíve been to Philmont, Northern Tier, and the recent national jamboree and Iím really looking forward to the world jamboree.  I'm a little freaked out by all the emails that we've been getting about all the dangers of Thailand, but oh well.  I listen to rock / alternative music.  I really want to meet people from all over the world, and I kind of want to see about sneaking into the bunji jumping skydiving activity, if they're offering it.  I know a little Spanish.
