CLAY 2018: Thunder Bay

Day One Recap

Despite the rain, CLAY 2016 got off to a fantastic start!

Early this morning, home teams, Bishops, and volunteers hopped in busses, airplanes, and cars with their GPS destinations set to the University of Prince Edward Island! Meanwhile, the National Planning Committee was getting a little antsy in the Gathering Office! (See below.)

The organized chaos of registration began at 6 PM. Participants streamed into the UPEI residences, and were greeted by the friendly Information Desk volunteers! They’re in Andrew Hall all week, ready to answer any questions you might have about Charlottetown, UPEI, and the Gathering!

After registration, it was time to sign up for Ministry Projects! The first Learn It session will be on Thursday evening after dinner.

Spending three to five days on a bus would make anyone antsy, especially CLAY participants!   The Richard Wood Trio provided entertainment for the evening Ceilidh in McMillan Hall. The youth danced for two hours to some traditional (and non-traditional) fiddle and Celtic music.

Everyone’s asleep now (or should be) – tomorrow we will be attending LGG #1, getting off campus for the Servant Event, and attending the first Ministry Project session!
