ARRIVAL / DEPARTURE DETAILS
Please plan to arrive on the afternoon of Tuesday, November 7th as retreat activities will begin in the early evening with a welcome dinner that will combine our limited partners and you. On day two, we have a full day planned which will run well into the evening of Wednesday, November 8. On our third and final day, Thursday, November 9th, we will conclude in the early afternoon, which will allow for departures by 1pm. Of course, it is our hope that you will be able to participate fully in the entire retreat, so please plan your travel accordingly.
Average temperatures in Rancho Santa Fe during the month of November range between a high of 72 degrees and a low of 50 degrees. It is rarely above 82 degrees, or below 45 degrees at this time of year.
This event is meant to be resort casual. We will spend the majority of our time together outdoors. Due to lower temperatures in the evenings, we recommend that you bring a sweater or jacket.
