Facilities: This resort does not do any mid week cleaning, so we will need to do our own in that regard
Pre/post planning - there are 7 Friedrichs homes in the NY area, so we expect to be able to put up all travelers flying into and out of NY. We may also have close to enough cars for the trip up. So this will reduce the cost of those traveling in.
