Get Ready for Extreme Fun at the District Conference starting Friday

Dear Conference Attendees,

I hope you are as excited as I am about the wonderful upcoming weekend we have planned for the 2014 District Conference.  We have a record number of Rotarians and partners registered for all or part of the Conference activities which is an automatic ingredient for a great time – the more Rotarians the better right?

The following are some tips on how you might want to prepare for the various festivities the Conference Committee has planned.  NOTE – should share this list with anyone who might be accompanying you as their participation is welcome in any or all of the events described below.

1. BYOB – Bring Your Own Banner!  If your club has a special banner, have someone bring it along and join in the fun as we compare designs, ideas and message.  While this is billed as a “contest” it is really about sharing club’s creative ideas.

2. Beach clean-up at Ocean Beach State Park – We will provide disposable gloves and trash bags.  There will also be a place to change for those going to the Paul Harris Lunch.  Note – there will be some painting involved, so dress accordingly.

Also, wear your dancing shoes as we rock to the music of The British Invasion.  Do you remember the 60’s or is it a purple haze?

4. Saturday Night – Begins with a Kentucky Derby Party during the cocktail reception. This will include a Hat Contest and there will be an opportunity to “bet” on your favorite horse. Bring your own hat or borrow one from our props table.Yellow Tux

5. Saturday night gala is dressy so, find that little black dress or your tux or best suit and join in the BIG celebration of our Rotary year.

Singers6. CALLING ALL SINGERS!!!  There will be plenty of opportunity to sing throughout the weekend and we need enthusiastic voices to lead it.  Rehearsals are scheduled throughout the weekend and it’s amazing what this group will prepare in 48 hours.  Everyone is welcome – Rotarians and guests.  Information will be posted at the Registration Desk re; Rehearsal times and location.

Any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.  I look forward to travelling with you this weekend on the Magical Mystery Tour as we celebrate the Rotarians of District 7980!

Rotarians at Play (RaP) – This is how we roll in D7980

Do you think that the District Conference/Assembly at the Mystic Marriott (May 2nd – 4th) will be boring? Guess Again….Our cast of characters are pulling out all of the stops to make this combination District Conference / District Assembly the most memorable event in the history of our District. Besides the ‘Traditional Rotary’ programs this combination event will feature a steady stream of Engaging presentations, recognitions  and entertainment by ‘Real Life Rotarians’ as we Light up Rotary.

Rotarians at Play (RaP) – This is how we roll in D7980.

By combining the District Assembly with the District Conference and holding it right in our district, we are giving attendees the opportunity to attend a District Conference (or just part of it) at a very low cost.

This is the event that people will be talking about for years to come. If you missed out on Woodstock then this is your chance to attend something equally historic.

Getting ready for 2014 Mystic District Conference/Assembly

The 2014 District Conference and Assembly will be held at the Mystic Marriott in Groton May 2-4th this coming year and the District Conference/Assembly committee is hard at play putting together a unique and fun event for the attendees.

Our District Conference returns to the great State of Connecticut for the first time in over 20 years which should give many Rotarians, friends and family the opportunity to attend a District Conference for their very first time. Our conference is structured so that attendees can save money by registering without a hotel room if they live nearby or they can pick the registration option that gives you a great room at the Mystic Marriott. The conference features a hands-on community service project, club project showcasing, recognitions for outstanding clubs and more fun than you would expect to have (What’s that mean? Well…Nick Casella is in charge of entertainment on Friday and Saturday night so anything can happen).
