Dueños weekend started back in 1992 and since then has been an event you cannot miss! This past Friday, on November 17th, began the Dueños weekend in Casa de Campo with the “Entrega de Regalos,” a traditional activity within the community where villa owners and residents share an excellent time and receive Dueños souvenirs. Starting at 2 pm, the “Entrega de Regalos” or welcome cocktail at the Flamboyan Conference center brought in hundreds of Casa de Campo villa owners who passed through to collect their “goody bags,” but were also treated to a number of other surprises. They were able to can find out more about the resort through a small exposition of each department which presented them with all the novelties planned for the coming year.
Among the various services and activities promoted by Casa de Campo were Golf, Polo and Equestrian, Shooting, Tennis, the Casa de Campo Gym, Pinecrest, Family Programs and children’s daycare, La Vecindad. The Food and Beverages Department provided delicious food and cocktails that were a huge hit. Appetizers were so yummy they disappeared as soon as waiters exited the door! There was also a stand for Pubbelly with various types of sushi, shrimp tacos, and tuna pizza which definitely had us wanting to go to the restaurant and enjoy more of their menu.
The Fundación ARMID who will be in charge of the development of the Fundación Real Madrid football school which officially starts on January 18th was also there, and we saw many kids with their parents excited to learn more about the program. Enrollment starts this December. In the meantime, kids can enjoy free practices until next month as a welcome gift, so don’t let your kids miss out! We were also there – Silgon, Inc. had a stand displaying our most recent editions of Casa de Campo Living magazine and our luxury magazine CasaLife, both featuring appetizing dining options in the resort.
In the lobby area of the Flamboyan there was a very entertaining program with various live artists performing. Plus, around 6 pm, we were able to see world-ranked tennis professional Nicolas Almagro happily posing with community members and autographing T-shirts. They certainly left with a smile on their faces after meeting him! The Dueños welcome reception was a wonderful occasion to see longtime friends and get to know the newest updates in each department of our complete resort. It was a perfect way start to the weekend and Dueños stayed into the early evening enjoying the activity! Stay tuned as we bring you more coverage and photos from everything that went on.
