Let it Snow!

...because when we land in Chennai, the average low will be 85° F, and that is the cold season.  By the time we leave it will be in the 100's.  We'll enjoy the snow while it lasts!

The team met today in Lake Zurich to work diligently on our presentations, brochures, business cards, and preparations for our trip.  We were joined by Jim Runnfeldt and Paul Larson who were helpful to us as always, and Dave Waring made a wonderful presentation about his experiences as GSE Team Leader to Southern India 11 years ago.  We look forward to seeing what has changed and what has stayed the same.

We also had the pleasure of meeting a wonderful Rotarian named Fred Rajan who was born in Chennai.  He shared some wonderful insights, gave us a hint of what to expect, pointed out a few key sights, and gave us some useful tips about etiquette and Indian customs.

The team is getting to know each other and everything is coming together quite nicely.  The next time we meet is at our Farewell Banquet on January 13th at the Makray Memorial Golf Club in BarringtonClick here if you haven't reserved your tickets!
