What to bring:
Clothing – As you pack, keep in mind the Midwest can be cold and damp at this time of year. Morning and nights can become chilly so you will want to pack warm clothes but be prepared for the warmth of midday. If you plan to play sports, bring the proper attire.
Bedding – You will need to bring your own bedding, pillow, and towel/washcloth. A limited number of these items are available upon request and for an additional fee to those flying to P4C. If you need linens and you did not request them on your registration, please email us.
Extras – Feel free to bring games that you would enjoy playing with other attendees. A Bible, notepad, and pen are highly suggested. Flashlights are a must!
‘The Derby: The Run for The Roses’
It is the first Saturday in May. Everyone is topped with their best hat and decked in their best dress. The tension and enthusiasm is building in the air for the “fastest two minutes in sports”. It’s the party of the year, and the Who’s who of society is in attendance. But one question remains: who will win the coveted prize? The gorgeous spray of roses is to be draped over the horse, the newly crowned king of racing. Who will break the tape and win the Derby trophy? It’s a day to be remembered for sure and on a day like today, anything can happen!
This is a formal event. Please come prepared to dress accordingly.
Men – Please wear a minimum suit and tie. A couple of options to consider- (1) you can wear a spring-like coat and tie or if you are adventurous and creative,(2) you can come in an outfit [including a hat] that is befitting the party of the year – The Derby. Pastels and a seersucker suit are just a few ideas to consider.
Ladies – Please wear dressy attire with a modest cut and length or if you are adventurous and creative come in a dress and hat that is befitting the party of the year – The Derby. The pastels are for sure in line with the perfect Derby outfit.
Note – The web is a great place to research costume/formal ideas! Ebay, Amazon, or thrift stores often have great items for little cost.
