Thursday Afternoon - Beach Volleyball

Who said that translators only sit behind a computer all day?!? After the distillery visit, we’ll head to the beach and divide up into teams based on different affinities (tool, profession, or other) for a fun, round robin tournament. If you’re not a volleyball player, join us to cheer on your favorite team! We will update this page soon with more details.
