We are at the Fort, and Loving It!

As expected, we arrived yesterday and set up Eifler Gym and the practice fields with absolutely no problems. Our 15 student managers did an OUTSTANDING job of getting everything set up and ready to go for our team.

We were done in plenty of time to meet the team over at T-Mac where we had dinner. General Custer welcomed all of us to the post, and then we had a GREAT dinner. There are many things we love about Fort Huachuca, but the food is definitely one of the highlights. Everyone on the post go out of their way to make sure everything is FIRST CLASS for us while we are here. As you can imagine, just like everything our U.S. Military does, they pay close attention to every single detail. It is obvious to all of us with UofA that each and every person here at Fort Huachuca want us to enjoy our visit.

I have already taken pictures of this mornings events and hope to get them up later. During practice, I serve as security for the gym.

Below are some pictures of yesterdays set up.
