2019 Men’s Advance: Rules of engagement
1. Be here, and nowhere else! You need to come to all meals and sessions. Be where you’re supposed to be.
2. Smoking is only allowed at the fire pit. PERIOD. No smoking in cars or anywhere else.
3. Talk to people that you don’t know. They may become your new best friend. The life you “bless” may be your own.
4. This is not Vegas. You can take pictures and post them on Facebook if you want, but work hard at staying off your cell phones and social media while you are here. Engage with the people who
are here with you!
5. Be a good sport. Let down your walls. Play along. The less questions you ask about what is coming up next the better it will be.
6. Wear your name tag at all times. People want to call you by name.
7. Have fun, and keep it real!
That’s all folks! Ask me if you have any questions. I can’t wait!!!
