SCHEDULE OF ACTIVITIES

Below are a few things to remember and a few hints for travel:

• No visa is required for stays < 30 days
• Passport is required. Make sure it is up to date. Sometimes it can be a problem if it is about to expire within a month or two so plan accordingly.
• Attire is your jurisdiction’s dress (Grand Officers wear their hoops, hairpieces/wiglets, etc.). Men can wear a suit but it is often very hot. A long sleeve barong (with a t-shirt underneath) is customary. Women need white dresses for initiation and Grand Cross. Plan for the heat even with air conditioning.
• Bring a roll of toilet paper. They have it, but their use must be much less than we are used to
• Hope you enjoy rice. It will be served with all meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner)
• Bring a bath towel. Sometimes they are provided, sometimes not.
• Power is 220v. Most phone chargers/computer chargers can deal with this without a problem. Their electrical plugs are usually similar to US – particularly in Manila.
• Don’t plan on the schedule of events being firm, just go with the flow and be accommodating.
• All travel outside of our hotel will be with an escort so that we are safe in our travels.

If you are attending, please complete the Registration page pdf    word  and return to me no later than Friday March 22, 2019. If you have any questions, please call Mrs. Kim Butler, Director of Grand Officers in Nevada at (775) 233-4204 or email at k.r.butler@sbcglobal.net.
