About the Weekend

Guys, we all need opportunities to break away from our busy lives to gather together as men to encourage each other, challenge each other, and relax and have fun together. The weekend will be friday evening and Saturday morning through lunch. This is not an overnight event so you still get to enjoy your own bed! Cost covers three meals and activities.

Main Topic

During the weekend we will be discussing how our lives can be more rewarding, healthier, and more meaningful when we free ourselves from the “balance” dilemma.
