"The trip to NYC for the inaugural A-10 tournament sponsored by the Alumni Office was well planned by Creative Travel and flawlessly executed. The hotel was convenient to good restaurants and numerous theaters. There was plenty of free time, and access to the subway was half a block away from the hotel. The ending dinner with the group was, in addition to being a great meal, a good time to get to know better new Davidson friends met on the trip." - Cecil Clifton '68
