I am writing this first post with much excitement and anticipation, similar to that of a child on Christmas Eve. In three short days, this group will embark on a 10-day journey to America's sunniest state, Florida. As clubbers such as myself begin to trickle into cold and quiet Oxford, what was once a far off dream is now becoming a reality.
On Monday many clubbers will congregate at the Club House, club's second home. Kevin Keuthe's famous chili will be gobbled up in a matter of minutes, a chilly football game will be played and brotherhood will be in the air. This pre-tour tradition has set a wonderful tone for many great tours- I expect no exception here. After a night of rest and a lunchtime breakfast, the 75 clubbers traveling on this year's tour will congregate in Presser 222 once again (club's rehearsal room). After a two and a half hour rehearsal, club will board the busses and depart for a Farewell Tour in Kettering to bring another tour tradition back to life.
This is only the beginning my friends.
I encourage you to continue to follow this blog for daily updates on this year's tour to Florida. Thank you for your continued support of this group and we hope to see you in Florida for what may be the best tour ever.
Casey Wood, tour manager
