    Welcome to RCME Mini Fellowship Tour Series

    Esplendoroso GOA!!

    Thursday, 7st December 2017 to Sunday, 10th Dec 2017

    Tour Chairman: Rtn. Sahit Kumar
    Tour Treasurer: Rtn. Venugopal Rao

    Pukhet has great water sporting facilities. Langkawi has terrific hotels overlooking the bay. But Goa doesn’t need them. Goa is just natural. The essence of a Goan spirit oozes out of every engagement with the destination: beaches::restaurants::clubs::or churches. God was certainly in a romantic mood when he created Goa. Esplendoroso Goa !
    We will give you extremely compelling reasons to take a tour to Goa. The month ? December (oh wow!). The location ? Panaji (hmm…that seems clever) The property ? Thomas Cook owned Sterling Resorts (oh…wait a minute…I am told that looks immaculate). And the price ? Rs. 11,500- for 3 nights and 4 days (what??..hello….wait… can’t be serious).
    So there must be a catch, right ? There is. We have only 20 rooms available and that can accommodate 40 adults. And group flight tickets give us the flexibility to change travelers till a month before the flight besides allowing us to book at an affordable price in one shot. So we need you to do the following:

    1. Enroll before the 15th September 2017.
    2. Pay an advance of Rs.4,500/- before 15th September 2017, balance by 15th Oct 2017.
    3. Do not cancel beyond the 25th October 2017 as that would mean you lose Rs.6,000/
    4. After 31st October 2017, cancellation means you lose Rs.8,000/.
