Hey Everyone! We had a total "SPLASH" ... I mean BLAST at Sea World last weekend. It was totally amazing. We went to Sea World in San Diego. The ride down was a long one but we had a good time listening to great music and singing along. We had a great group of clients who were all so excited to get to go and see all the marine animals and a few of us who wanted to ride some of the new super-fast rides.
When we first arrived the hotel was waiting for us. They had rolled out a red carpet and even prepared a punch and cookies reception for us. It was really sweet of them. They are always so accommodating to us when we come down. It made for a nice relaxing time at the end of a long ride down on the bus. Some of us even went down to the pool the first night to splash around and play in the water before dinner.
When we got up on Saturday everyone was so excited to get out and get to the park. WE all decided what we wanted to do before we went into Sea World. We all got to go and see and do some fun things while we were there. Most of us got the chance to watch the dolphin show and the Shamu show. This of course meant a few of us left a little bit splashed on. Some of the groups even had the chance to feed the sea lions. That was really fun, except the birds kept swooping in on the fish we were feeding them. A few of our clients got to pet the manta rays. It was really neat to feel how soft they were. All in all, the whole trip was a great experience for everyone who went. We had a truly amazing time.
We would love for you all to have the opportunity to come along and join us for these trips. There are so many fun and exciting trips planned for next year.

Now back to the Real News –
Guess what?! We, UCP CIP Tours, went to LAS VEGAS! Yup that is right, Las Vegas, People... We actually were out there last month in July. It was hot and so were the machines. WHEW!!! These guys were all on a roll. I can tell you more than half the people who played came back home UP on the money! It was amazing. They all had a blast.
We stayed at the 4 Queens on Fremont Street. Frank, Tami and Marie all have amazing luck at the casino. They won and got free stuff and really enjoyed themselves. Some of these guys didn't know what to expect. It was really great to get and sit down with them and have some great chats about their lives and show them how to play the machines.
We had a lot of fun walking down Fremont Street looking at other casinos there and checking out some of the street vendors and artists. It was so much fun. For lunch that day we walked down to the Main St Station for the buffet. Food was amazing and we all totally stuffed ourselves. That night we got all dressed up and went out to an awesome show on the strip at Planet Hollywood. Singing, dancing and SHOWGIRLS! They group really had a great time and we hope to have them all back with us next year when we hit up RENO!
As usual the staff was amazing. Special thanks to Hailey our Nurse. She was wonderful. She was there to help out with all our needs and anything that came up. She is really fantastic. Thanks so much to all our other staff for the great job they do. This trip was our first time having Aaron along for staff. We are stoked to have added him along with Ian, a second time staffer for our out of town activities, to our list. This was also Valen’s first trip with us out of town. HUGE help and we were really glad to have him along. Allen and Veronica… They have become UCP CIP regulars. They are always there to help out and make sure everyone has a great time.
Our 2012 events are posted and ready. As of now, all of the CIP Tours are ready to view. They feature trips to Hawaii, Yosemite National Park and NASCAR. The Leisure Club events are ready to view and feature Yoga, Bowling, Barbeques and Boomers. The Kids Club events are also ready to be seen. Additionally, The Ranch workdays are available and these days are open to the general public. This is the best way to get to envision The Ranch; it's current state, it's potential and all of the good that will come from it. We invite you to come see what's going on and get involved. 2012 is going to be a GIANT year for UCP of San Luis Obispo County and we want everybody join.
