Congratulations are in order for the outstanding job done by both of you and the SI New York organizing committee and members of the club, all working together in making this first cruise/congress a great success. The event was flawless from embarkation to debarkation.
The opening ceremony was probably the best ever, and the way that the various countries flags were displayed by power point was a first and very well done. In addition to this being the first Skål International Congress on a ship, the venue allowed for several Skål clubs to participate at each of the ports of call - SI Boston, SI St. John’s (New Brunswick, Canada) and SI Halifax (Nova Scotia, Canada). All congress attendees were able to enjoy each club’s various activities which was another first for a Skål World Congress.
The attention paid to organization and detail was evident in how you addressed issues arising prior to the cruise/congress and at all the various meetings and functions during the cruise/congress. There was true professionalism in every detail and every aspect of the event’s execution.
SI New York has been a leader in Skål for 75 years and just took that leadership a step further in taking on the challenge of hosting a World Congress at sea. I am sure that you have opened the door for future congresses to hold events in a similar format and to follow your excellent example.
Congratulations again to SI New York for being a leader in the Skål movement. Warmest regards and Skål.
Sincerely, Tom White President Skål International USA
