I played in the tennis event on Saturday--Steve sat out because of tennis (or chainsaw) elbow. The tennis event encountered some rain so it ended during the third round. Robert, the club manager, made a huge pot of Brunswick stew for lunch after the round robin.
The Cruise for Hunger Event was held on Sunday after noon after a huge brunch at the club. We met our crew at lunch and then headed out for a 3 hour cruise. There were 9 boats in the flotilla which went up to Tierra Verde and the grand canal.
The event continues on Monday with golf and closes on Tuesday evening with a dinner at the club.
