Here are some ways you can participate:

extra. We do not put out any "individual" bed palanca for candidates and if there's not enough, it cannot be put out.


3. Team Bed Palanca: Total - 75. You may give individual bed palanca to a team member or members, or you 

may wish to give palanca to each team member.


4. Kitchen Palanca: Total - 111. This is for the dining tables at meals. This palanca should be given to the Head Kitchen Chas to be used as needed.


5. Banner Palanca: Banners may be "theme" banners or a banner of your choice. They should be no larger than four feet wide by five feet long (4' x 5'). Please give banners to the Palanca Chas with instructions and/or a note regarding when to present them if you have a preference.


There will be Palanca Chas at Send-Off to receive the palanca you have to give.
