The Hospitality Room was opened at about 16:30. The shopping was complete and beverages and snacks were on hand.
The original idea was to cook burgers for 44 people on the patio around the pool, a daunting task in and of itself. Rain was predicted so we changed it and ordered pizza for all which we enjoyed in the Hospitality Room. (Pizza and refreshments paid by Avel)
Warren Beneville and Monica Tervoort picked up those at the airport. Thank you both!
