The second day started on the front foot, with a tasty bowl of grits and a glass of orange juice. It was then down to the Osprey meeting room which will act as the PlanetWatchers’ base of operations for the length of the conference. It was great to meet with Anna Walters from NCIS and get my lanyard ahead of the rush. We had a quick look around the conference hall before I got started with locating all of our shipped items.

Step one was to get the laptop stickers along with the scorecards for the PlanetWatchers minigolf tournament on Tuesday afternoon and put them in the notebooks in the conference hall. With a bit of teamwork, this was achieved fairly quickly and then it was on to preparing the polo shirts that all the PlanetWatchers team would be wearing during the conference. Before long they were ironed and folded and ready to go.

The tablecloth, roller banners, and notice board that we will be displaying during our minigolf tournament were all present and looking good. The morning preparations finished up with the VIP gift baskets getting collected by the Hyatt Regency team to be delivered to guest rooms.

A tasty team lunch was the perfect reward for all the morning efforts. The afternoon went by quickly with all the anticipation for the Super Bowl in the evening and it was great to enjoy the game in such a lively atmosphere. 

Thoughts have now turned to the first day of the conference starting tomorrow which is yet another thing to look forward to.
