I reached the convention quite early in the morning. Events did not start before 10 but i was there by 8 and was having a smoothie at a restaurant near the registration desk inside the MGM, which is quite big by the way. MGM could easily be as big as a neighborhood in Mumbai. So when i was having the smoothie two lions from golden city chicago joined me on my table and we talked. They have built canopy kind of things in the local park where kids can take shelter when it's raining. They provide food kits to the homeless there. For FRC every year they sell beer on the 4th if July, that is their independence day. They gave me their club pin before leaving.
After meeting them i headed towards the marquee ballroom where i met Kyle. Who was a lion leo from Canada and was also speaking about his video that he made last year. Saskia, another lion leo was presenting the "leos share their story". After I presented our video at the session i received a pin from the lion's club of newzealnd. I immediately became friends with Saskia, who is from the lion's club of newzealand and she introduced me to other leos. Following the session, there was a leo social in the evening which was a party for leos and leo advisors. The theme for the party was cowboys for which me, saskia, max and Juan went shopping and had a lot of fun at the party and the shopping.
I met a lot more leos at the party and made friends there. All in all it was a good day that I spent there.
