Baden-Powell Council BSA Scouts
On Saturday, the Jamborette opens up for Visitor Day and the Satellite Camp for younger Scouts is in full swing across the Castle road. So, when the Country Fair starts in the afternoon, there's a real crowd on hand to see what the various contingents have to offer. Each overseas contingent, and most Scottish groups, had booths at which they either sold something (usually edible) which is representative of their country or region, or had a game for the visitors to play.
The national currency for the Country Fair is the Atholl, issued by the Bank of Scoutland especially for the Fair. Visitors buy Atholls, and each contingent is issued a quantity at the beginning of the Fair. While half the contingent goes off to spend their Atholls, the other half runs their booth collecting more Atholls. Every once in a while, the groups switch off, and money flows... Spend it quick, because at the end of the Fair hyperinflation hits and the exchange rate drops to zero.
