Subject: Visit to X01 and Everglades City
Please find attached a couple of photos of our trip to X01 and Everglades City yesterday January 13, 2013. This was an informal office fly-out using 4 private aircraft and 2 cars for a total of 17 people. The fly out followed an intense 5 day leadership meeting that we hold every year in Miami. We were warmly welcomed by Byrd at the airport, and given directions and advice.  The outing was a resounding success. We truly enjoyed our visit to X01 and the Everglades City area and will be back. This email is to thank you, Collier County and X01 staff for maintaining such a great facility and for being as welcoming as you were.Regards,
