WEDNESDAY 

Rooms are available for check-in at 4pm on Wednesday.  

We will all settle in to our rooms and relax for a bit before meeting in the foyer to go to a casual dinner together. This gives us a chance to get to know everyone attending and just hang out together.  

“THE KEY IS TO KEEP COMPANY WITH PEOPLE WHO UPLIFT YOU, WHOSE PRESENCE CALLS FORTH YOUR BEST.” EPICTETUS 

After dinner, you and your spouse are free to sightsee, walk along the beach, go to a movie, hang out with other couples, whatever you like! 

THURSDAY 

Breakfast at the hotel is included in your stay with us. After breakfast, we will meet in our conference room for our first session at 10am. After 45 minutes, we will break, then come back for another 45 minutes before finishing up. When our session is finished, you and your spouse can go on a nice lunch date in Myrtle Beach or dine at the hotel. This meal is not included in your package. 

At 2pm, the group will be going bowling at 710 Bowling in Myrtle Beach. This is not mandatory, but it is a fun, included outing and a nice day-date activity! Bowling is $24 per couple & includes shoes and unlimited games. After bowling (or instead of, if you’d prefer), make an appointment at the Hibiscus Spa, or check out many of the other fun activities near the hotel.

Since Thursday is Valentine’s Day, this night you and your spouse can go out together for dinner to celebrate each other. This meal is not included in your package. 

“Marriage is gift from God to us; the quality of our marriage is a gift from us to Him.” - Unknown

After 45 minutes, we will break, then come back for another 45 minutes to finish up. When our session is over, lunch is up to you, and the rest of the afternoon is free time for you both. Friday evening, we will all meet for one last group dinner. This dinner will be at a nice restaurant, and is included in your package.
