President's Reception

As always the President's reception was well attended. The agents swapped gifts in the first ever 'Secret Agent' exchange, and our Host, Jason Fowler thanked everyone on behalf of Air & Sea International for visiting his hometown. The EFFA agents chatted with Jason Castor, of the United Way charity and the total of USD 3500 was raised by the group for this worthy charity

AGM

The AGM proved to be a dynamic meeting, with Vice-President Barry Birdsall reporting on the ongoing rebuild of the EFFA website. and with much of the discussion led by President Pat Dillon.

Saturday evening dinner

Our Hosts chose the beautiful setting of 'Log Haven' as the venue for our Saturday dinner. The group enjoyed a coach trip each way and took in the fresh air on the terrace

Golf Day

It was a coach ride into the mountains for the EFFA golfers to the Homestead Resort, Midway, Utah. The format was Texas Scramble with teams of 4. The course was in excellent condition and proved to be a challenge, but the spectacular views and clean mountain air made it a pleasure to play.  

Sunday trip to Park City

Some of us who were not playing golf took the coach trip out to Park City to see the facilities built for the 2002 Winter Olympics. The more adventurous of us enjoyed the fun rides (some people became surprisingly competitive) and the fresh mountain air. This was followed by a pleasant stroll through Park City's street stalls and restaurants, where we joined the golfers for lunch.
