Getting to PCB

What to Pack
When you go to a beach resort you expect to pack casual summer clothes and beach gear. But here are a few additional things to bring:
- a sweatshirt for colder weather and inside the ballroom.
- your own beach towel
- some condos do not have wifi, so you may want to bring an ethernet cable to connect to the internet
