Good Evening from India!

Depart from US/Canada on Feb. 12, 2016
Arrive New Delhi, India on Feb. 13, 2016
Depart from New Delhi, India on Feb. 26, 2016

For clarity, I am attaching the Final Trip program, costs and Trip Application form.
If you are planning to join the team in Feb. 2016 and have not sent in your Trip Application form yet, it is now imperative to send in your applications and payments at the earliest. As the dates are now final, we would like to issue the airline tickets at the earliest in order to get the best possible fares. As you know, airline fares creep up and up as we get closer to the date of travel. Of course, if we do get cheaper fares than indicated on the Trip document, we will pass on the full benefit to you.
With warm regards,
Yours in Rotary
